On the subject of digital presentation of maps, there’s a lovely article in this week’s New Yorker on the way in which Neverlost and GPS are changing the entire way people perceive geography and the map-reading experience, at: http://www.newyorker.com/fact/content/articles/060424fa_fact
thanks for the link Rachel. I started scanning it but it’s too long for me. Will have to print it out and read on a commute :)
hey Rachel. I ended up getting around to reading that New Yorker piece. Excellent.
I think there’s a whole blog post brewing around that. Thanks again for the link :)
