3: Classic HWJF: The Art of Geography
We're going to start up the next season of HWJF but in the meantime I'm revisiting all the great Google Hangout episodes as podcasts. These have been modified to be audio only (the best one can with a visual medium). Gretchen Peterson, renowned cartographer, talks with James Fee and Madeline about her new book, Cartographer's Toolkit, their favorite projections, art maps, and the shift to web cartography. Gretchen talks about her mapping workflow and explains how she got into the field. James argues that we've entered a golden age of mapping, and that CartoCSS allows for a new freedom of expression. WeoGeo gave free copies of Gretchen's book to two viewers who made excellent comments during the live broadcast!Special Guest: Gretchen Peterson.
