    So does this mean that Mount Road/Egmore is still “downtown”? I thought it had moved to places like Tiruvanmiyur.

      It does seems so, from the large tracts of continuous commercial spaces. The data for the map is not complete, but other parts of the city have more of mixed commercial/residential spaces.

      Downtown is still clearly Egmore-Anna Salai-T Nagar belt.

    Nice map, is there a legend available?

    • planemad says :

      You will just need to guess the colors haha 🙂 I’ll have a legend in the final version as i’m still playing with the color palette.

    Do you know where I can get a contour map of Chennai?
