Cartographic Perspectives blog

Filed under: cartography — ubikcan @ 8:42 am

Cartographic perspectives, the journal of NACIS, has a new blog.

Looks good so far. Both the blog and the journal are edited by John Krygier. The blog features excerpts and illustrations from the journal. The idea is rather new I think. Very few journals have blogs as far as I know.

Some papers from CP can occasionally be found around the web. I found this one on Jake Barton recently (also by John).

Why a blog? Enhancing communication! I plan to post abstracts and summaries of articles, essays, methods pieces, and reviews in forthcoming issues of CP to this blog, each with its own entry. This will serve to promote the work published in CP and allow comments and responses to the work. I will also report on developments such as full text availability (via EBSCO [and maybe other services] sometime this year), calls for submissions – books/software to be reviewed, methods pieces, visual fields materials, etc.

I am committed to engaging more people in providing quality content for Cartographic Perspectives – academics, professionals, enthusiasts, hackers – anyone with an interests in maps and mapping. It is impossible to fit mapping into any single field or area of expertise, and my hope is to represent the diversity of work on mapping in Cartographic Perspectives.
