Online Media Tackle Geography and Mapping

Bookmark and Share
Tuesday, February 25th 2014


Three popular online media properties have been taking on geography and mapping since at least the last Esri User Conference last July. James Fallows American Futures project is partnership between The Atlantic, Marketplace and Esri. Wired’s MapLab follows two bloggers who "indulge their obsession with maps and chronicle their quest to become mapmakers." Reddit’s MapPorn page shares a variety of interesting maps. How well are these mainstream media outlets educating abotu and promoting geography and geospatial technology?
