The Mercator projection is so bananas.
The world shapes the map, sure. But the map also shapes the world. Here’s to better maps.

    audioaddiction said: hi, I run yeahmaps and am a GIS tech for the city where I live and I wanted to know what you thought about "controlled" government data and it's relationship with open data (OSM & similar services). As the city's GIS department we obviously strive to make sure our data is the best available and would like the data we create to be mirrored on other applications, but there's no way to make sure every map service is right. Do you have any experience with this or know of articles discussing it?

    fyeahgis:

    Yes. In fact, I recently spoke/presented on that exact topic. I really think local government and OpenStreetMap use is an untapped resource. 

    You can really store tons of information in the OSM model, so it’s more of a duplication of what a city GIS would typically do…you dont wanna flood the OSM servers though constantly importing/exporting/serving that data out, so you would need to find that balance to mirror that data without duplication that effort…We’re really just scratching the surface on that in the US. 

    Anyways, you can see my slides here and they are interactive, with links to a lot of articles and resources on the topic. There;s also a GitHub repo available to fork as well.

    And YeahMaps!

    Thanks for the response!

    Woodlawn Park is one of two disc golf courses in Moorhead Minnesota but previously there had not been a map of the course, so I made one.  I hope this map can find it’s way to those that would find it useful.
Here is a review of the course on dgcoursereview.

Finished an assignment today and rewarded myself with some thematic map making. I’m not a big fan of the empty space to the left of South America but other than that I’m pretty happy with it.
Any constructive input in much appreciated!

AN ORNATE NORTH ARROW OR SEA MONSTERS!!!
