Next Meetup

Adelaide Mapup 1 (new date, time)
Come along for a casual chat about maps, surveying and the spatial profession. We will have the following conversation topics, plus discussion about any maps or other spatial products people bring along: 1. The best, and worst, maps ever made and how we can learn from them. 2. Stories of the greatest expeditions ever and the maps that helped, or hindered, them. 3. Reviews of the oldest and the newest maps to see if the profession has progressed sufficiently since Anaximander 2,600 years ago (points for whoever brings along a spherical screen). 4. Philosophical and ethical discussions about map power. This mapup will: 1. Provide a space for people passionate about maps to be open about their hopes and dreams. 2. Involve paper, screens and mud. 3. Put us in touch with our feelings about maps. 4. Provide a platform for changing the world, by provoking us to get up at 4am to make better maps of it. Hope to see you Wednesday, 19th December at the Grace Emily (232 Waymouth St, Adelaide) front bar from 5:30pm.
