Map Stack lets you combine custom cartography, colors, and satellite images into custom, easily modified maps. The service, provided by Stamen Design, currently operates between 11am to 5pm PST, Monday to Friday and is completely free of charge.

We provide access to different parts of the map stack, like backgrounds, roads, labels, and satellite imagery. These can be modified using straightforward controls to change things like color, opacity, and brightness. So within a few minutes you can have a map of anywhere in the world with dark green parks and blue buildings. You can get very precise with image overlays and layer effects, using layers as cut-out masks for other layers. Or just make a regular-looking map in the colors you want.
