What would you like to get out of the meetup?

Use OSM to make visually persuasive maps of environments; info graphics; rendering big data maps; relations between digital map design and printed precedents.

Do you have a map project you are working on?

Digitizing nineteenth-century landscape maps of California; using maps as learning tools; digitizing early modern maps.

Do you have any map skills you'd like to share with the group?

Cartographic analysis; theorizing space and place in maps; traditions of map design.

What's your favorite map?

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 and visiting scholar at UC Berkeley's Office of History of Science (OHST) who blogs at "Musings on Maps." This picture sorta resembles me.

What Daniel B. is saying about this Meetup Group

Very productive discussion about mapping--both afterwards and during the event.
