which is currently being developed by the Muddy team
The Muddy Map Explorer supports interactive, text-based exploration
and navigation of geographic data (e.g., from OpenStreetMap
Its user interface is patterned after Multi-User Domain games (MUDs
using the same sort of concise, expressive navigation and exploration commands that they use.
Just as MUD players learn about gaming domains,
Muddy's users can explore (and build mental models of) neighborhoods, cities, and regions.
