New Feature: Map Questions

Announcing a new feature on The Map Room: Map Questions.

Here’s the premise. Every now and then I get a question by e-mail about a map-related subject — for example, where they can buy a certain map, or whether an antique map in their possession has any value and what to do with it. But, much as I’d like to help, I can’t: even nearly two years into this project, I’m still no expert — even though some of you seem to believe that I am.

It occurred to me that some of my readers knew a lot more about this subject than I do, and that, if I didn’t know the answer, but posted it here, somebody else might be able to help by posting an answer in the comments.

So if you have a map-related question, go to this page and fill out the form. If your question is legitimate — I do get a lot of spam — then I’ll post it and let my clever readers take a crack at it.

This will only work, though, if my clever readers do take a crack at it. As such, it’ll be an interesting experiment. Let’s see how it goes.
