Happy International Map Year!

Did you know 2015 is International Map Year?  No, suspect not.  It was deemed IMY by the UN Committee of Experts on Global Geospatial Information Management (UN-GGIM).  It's a wonderful idea but not much seems to be happening.  Check out the events page with its offering of 3 events this year.  Hmm, they are all conferences which are happening anyway.  And we've missed an earlier event this year on 01 Jan...
IMY 01 Jan 15
I very much hope it gets going and generates a buzz.

Meanwhile, my next excitement when I'm up in London in Feb will be to visit this exhibition at Somerset House, Mapping the City.  It looks fun.  And an awesome venue too.
