TypeBrewer: Font Tool for Cartography

TypeBrewer is a Flash application that “offers a quick and easy way to explore typographic alternatives and see the impact that various elements of type have on the overall look and feel of a map.“
The application allows your to play around with different fonts, sizes, label densities and font tracking to get a better understanding of how different fonts will look on a map. Users can select between classic, formal, informal and contemporary style labeling. Click on the “learn more” link to see a brief outline of typography on maps.
