OpenWhateverMap (openwhatevermap.xyz) is a fun web map display configured to display a patchwork of tiles from random tile servers (random styles).

The site serves a serious purpose of illustrating a wide variety of OpenStreetMap tile servers available, as well as revealing details of those tile servers when clicking. It also illustrates the way tiled web maps work, where normally this is harder to see because map tile images appear side-by-side without seams.

OpenWhateverMap even has a twitter account! Twitter user@OpenWhateverMap
