Seems that lots of trucking companies are keen to show their reach by plastering maps on their vehicles. Martijn Storms shared this selection.
These days, travelling is a bit more complex than it used to be, then, as a map-geek why not planning a virtual trip to Null Island! Luckily, when we were in Burkina Faso, we met a young artist and asked him to express his art on our car. The Gulf of Guinea is since then hardcoded on the rear of the bodywork. To complete this virtual trip, one needs to wear a Null Island tee-shirt. This one is using the sharp design from Ekta Daryanani.
Happy Anniversary and long live Mappery.
For our 3rd anniversary, our co-founder Ken Field sent us this pic from the preparations for this year’s ESRI user conference. He said:
“Here’s a picture of me next to an 8.5ft diameter globe in our newest building on the Esri campus. One of my map buddies John Nelson was involved in designing the cartography as he explains in this blog. Feel free to get in touch if you’re near Redlands and I’ll give you a tour!”
I’d just agreed with Arnaud that for Mappery’s 3rd anniversary we would take some selfies with maps in the wild. I went for a walk and passed this camper van with a compass design, I just happened to be wearing my Just Two Numbers t-shirt so it was a double result.
Sort of sums up three years of mappery for me.
This album cover came via Raf and Le Cartographe, it’s a beauty
Une couv’ d’enfer et un premier album qui date déjà de 2016 purement magnifique ! Pierre Chrétien et ses amis nous emmènent très très loin… (A hell of a cover and a first album which already dates from 2016 purely magnificent! Pierre Chrétien and his friends take us very, very far)
Ken spotted this rug at Duxford aerodrome
The description says
Afghan women made and sold decorative rugs to of duty Soviet troops who occupied the country in the 1980s. They remained a source of income throughout the war 2001 to present. They now depict British and American, not Soviet, equipment.
