Maps are abstract objects symbolically representing actual places and objects. Information richness or a multivariate map indicates relationships within itself, thus enabling comparison to add the meaningfulness of the map. This thesis describes the conceptualization, design, and implementation of a multilayered, public, and dynamic 3D map system that allows users to participate in its construction through collection and input of the data needed for the task. In aiming to provide a historic framework for the project "The Fluid City", a brief history of cartography and types of maps, geographic information systems, digital elevation models, information visualization techniques for geographic and elevation data, as well as a survey history of Istanbul and her historic maps are briefly explained. The project proposes an alternative reading of the city of Istanbul, her dreams, and the personal mythologies of her many inhabitants.
