@MapsintheWild I found the prop for any future party!
Stan McShinsky sent us this pic of his Map Chairs
I decided to reupholster some chairs in my office with aerial imagery. I think it turned out great.
I just stumbled upon mappery.org and love it.
Well we were pretty chuffed (BritTalk for pleased) that he loves Mappery and we liked his chairs so we asked how he found the fabric in case any of our readers wanted to make there own Map Chair.
I uploaded the imagery to https://www.spoonflower.com/welcome and had it printed on the Eco Canvas fabric. They printed it and sent it to me really fast. There were several sites that offer that service and I ordered samples from them. SpoonFlower was the best quality and clarity for what I wanted.
So now we will sit back and wait for more Map Chair pics and also a referral bonus from SpoonFlower 🙂
Matt Simpson sent us this pic of a magnificent ceramic tile map depicting the extents of the North Eastern Railway line which he spotted at Pickering Station.
Apparently there are also examples at York, Whitby and Tynemouth – can anyone send pics?
This weekend Ken Field and John Nelson came to us for lunch before their appearances at the ESRI UK user group event this week.
We went for a walk through Highgate Woods, jabbering about maps as we strolled. At some point I mentioned Ken’s recent 3D globe of riding sea levels, John hadn’t seen it so Ken whipped out his phone and demoed it in the middle of the woods. Truly a map in the wild!
It’s worth a look
