The map has been released for this year. Following the theme of Fertility 2.0, the streets all have flowery names.
Significantly, the gates are opening at 6pm on Sunday this year, instead of midnight. Not sure if this will reduce entry times at all, last year we arrived at 00:30 on Monday and it took 6 hours to get in.
We recommend all Burners also check out Burner Map, a handy application that lets you tell your friends where they can find you.
In 2012, the annular streets are named:
The road circling Center Camp is named “Rod’s Road” in honor of BRC designer Rod Garrett (1936-2011).
The light blue shaded areas do not specify, but rather approximates where you will find reserved-placement, interactive theme camps. (We’re holding some prime space for the general public there too). Gates open at 6 pm Sunday 8/26. At midnight between Sunday and Monday, all unclaimed camping space everywhere is available to all.
The distance from the inner-most Esplanade street to the Man is 2400 feet. Esplanade to Alyssum Street, curb to curb, is 400 feet deep. Other mid-city double-deep blocks are 430 feet deep. The remaining blocks are 200 feet deep.
A mid-city interactive boulevard, 40-foot wide Geranium street is adjacent to double-deep blocks and features art plazas at 4:30 and 7:30.
Public plazas are at Kingcup and 3:00, 6:00, and 9:00. We are holding most of the camping space around these plazas unreserved and available for the general public to occupy and maintain as an experiment in spontaneous urban planning and collaboration.
