Cartography’s Last Post

A year ago, if you had asked me which mapping blogs were my favourites (and my greatest competition), I would have said, with little hesitation, Cartography, the Canadian Cartographic Association blog run by Paul Heersink, and GeoCarta, by surveyor Roger Hart. Times have changed: GeoCarta was last updated in March and is, as such, dormant; and now Paul has announced that the requirements of his new job (time, potential conflicts of interest) are forcing him to cease blogging. Well, crap. I understand the decision — he has to do what’s in his best interest, after all — but I’ll certainly miss his blogging.
