Steve Pickering followed up on Barry Rowlingson’s Keef Hartley album cover with this one.
“Farmers Market, Musikk Fra Hybridene. Norwegian bluegrass/ Bulgarian folk/ klezmer/ fill-in-the-gap… “
The Lego globe isn’t a patch on the masterpiece produced by Ken Field which was exhibited at last year’s BCS event, which reminds me that we don’t have a pic of that.
This 3D city map of Hereford is a stunner (shame about the shadow Matt)
This circular relief map of Hereford is quite a nice piece of work.
To find all 3 on one day’s outing was a great result – our first Maps in the Wild hat trick!
This is the first of (hopefully) a series of Maps in the Wild from FOSS4G which kicks off today in Bucharest.
Maria Arias de Reyna sent me this pic of a Bucharest map on the floor of a subway crossing near to the conference venue. A great start for people arriving at FOSS4G
After I posted the pic above my pal Michael Terner sent me this pic which I think is a little better.
Who is Arnold Hills? You may well ask! Apart from my West Ham supporting friends not many people will know about Mr Hills, he was the founder of Thames Iron Works F.C. which subsequently became West Ham United F.C. in 1900.
This map shows the locations of West Ham’s football grounds up to their recent move to the London Stadium on the Olympic Park. To be honest, it is not a great map, I think there are better ways to present the history and journey of a great football club.
This map of Fatburger locations was spotted by Bojan Savric in Tokyo (another ICC2019 distraction)
“Fatburger #Tokyo on seventh floor by #shibuyacrossing is using right #mapprojection to map locations of their restaurants 👍”
I like that Bojan was at least as interested in the map projection as the burgers
Enock Seth Nyamador sent name this superb globe sculpture outside the Ghana Export Promotion Agency building in Accra.
“This globe located right in front of @GEPAGhana #Accra, #Ghana signifying exporting more Ghana goods to the world I guess, the arrows & lines seem to indicate so. Cheers 😎”
Not sure what this arrow is telling us but it looks assertive
