Link Roundup for February 7

Significant Blogspot outages rendered several favourite mapping blogs unavailable for portions of last weekend, including Cartography and GeoCarta.

peters_new.jpgThe city of North Platte, Nebraska, its police department, and surrounding Lincoln County all use different GIS and CAD software to generate city maps; a move is underway to have them all share a common (and commonly developed) map.

A new edition of the Peters Map (see previous entry) has been released by ODT Maps with new supplemental material that shows other equal-area projections and tones down the proselytizing (it doesn’t bash Mercator). Thanks to Tony for the early heads-up; see also GeoCarta.

Via MapHist and MAPS-L, we learn that the New York Map Society is being reactivated; see also First Printing.
