Use OSM to make visually persuasive maps of environments; info graphics; rendering big data maps; relations between digital map design and printed precedents.
Digitizing nineteenth-century landscape maps of California; using maps as learning tools; digitizing early modern maps.
Cartographic analysis; theorizing space and place in maps; traditions of map design.
My favorite map of place is the GPS maps of London by Jeremy Wood; my favorite global map is Fine's cordiform world map.
I'm a historian who blogs at "Musings on Maps."
Very productive discussion about mapping--both afterwards and during the event.
