Angharad Stone shared this beautiful map book cover from her trip to Manchester
Our friends at UK GovCamp sent us these pics of the decoration on their room at the Premier Inn Hun near the event and then John Ivers of CDR sent me some slightly better pics. This neighbourhoods map is in the same style as the one from Edinburgh that one of the FOSS4GUK delegates sent us a while back.
We need to gather a complete set of these Hub maps
David Henderson of Ordnance Survey shared this magnificent map table from a coffee place in Edinburgh. It’s a beautiful map but I am not sure the MD (or Chief Geospatial Officer as he is now known) should be sharing a risqué map with Shetland in a box, the cafe might get referred to the Scottish Government.
Paul Hardy sent us this picture of a sundial at Hatfield House.
“If you are short of maps in the wild, attached is an interesting map not far from where I live. It is a big sundial, installed in 2011 at Hatfield House to mark their 400th anniversary. I assume it is in Gnomic projection. The map on it is centred on Hatfield which is 20 miles north of London, UK. It’s hard to read until you realise the land is white and the sea black!
The Old Palace at Hatfield house was where Queen Elizabeth lived as a child. The 1611 house has been the home of the Cecil family continuously ever since! The house interior is splendid and Jacobean.”
