A successful week in Nottingham during Maptember

A week and a half ago, I presented An Introduction to Ordnance Survey’s Cartographic Design Principles, for what is probably the final time, at AGI GeoCommunity ’13 in Nottingham.
I’d like to thank all those who attended, it was great to round off the Summer with another large audience with some very interesting questions.
A quick update on the OS principles and our CartoDesign webpages in general, I’m hoping these will finally be going live in about a week. We’re still working on our resources page but that will follow soon after.

Meanwhile in Nottingham, in another part of the building, FOSS4G was kicking off. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to stick around but my teammate Paul gave a workshop that seems to have gone down very well. At the start of this week I was delighted to be informed that both my teammate Charley and I had won awards.

I was awarded best static map (digital display) for my map showing ‘Europeans from post-2001 European Union Accession Countries Residing in England and Wales’ which you can read more about here.

A full gallery of entries can be found on the FOSS4G website.
