A Cartography Laboratory made by Ramiro Aznar
For the last several months I have been gathering notes from different sources (life and professional experiences, books, discussions…) to structure a book about the complexities that the geospatial sector faces when trying to represent geography. When Alicia from Vizzuality invited me to give a talk was a perfect opportunity to convert the content I have been curating into real chapters.
One month ago I gave my first NACIS (remote) talk called Star Tracker On: Coordinates Systems in Space. They were so fast and within a week, the video was already posted in their channel:
This is going to be a short post. This morning I woke up with the feeling of trying something new. Listening to a recent podcast about the sound and the voice I came up with the idea of making a map for blind people. I found out that there is some research about routing or direction maps for people with limited vision or just blind, but what about thematic webmaps?
Last week when reading Ken Jennings Maphead I discovered the Degree Confluence project (people visiting the latitude and longitude degree integer intersections). So this weekend, I spent some time investigating where these intersections are and which is the closest one to my current location using GeoPandas.
I am really into making lists. Lists for work tasks, shopping or even house duties. For the last months I have been reading cartography related books a lot. So there you have, my favorite books in a list.
