The year in cartography reviewed

Now that the Commission is in place the plan is for myself and the vice-chairs to disseminate information that meets the aims we have set out. We will be using this blog/website to link to resources, to compile both a bibliography and a research listing, and to list events linked to the Commission or that further it’s aims.

This post highlights some of the content of a presentation I gave this week at the Society of Cartographers annual conference, entitled “The year in cartography reviewed”. The presentation was a personal reflection on the last year, and highlighted just some of the developments in the mapping world that intrigued or inspired me.

The content ranged from Resources (Mapbox and Shaded Relief Archive), through Blogs (Mapping London), to Visualisations (Decade of news visualised), and Threads (Typographic Maps).

UPDATE: All the URLs from “The year in cartography reviewed“.
