Introducing the Calendar

Today I’m launching a new feature here on The Map Room: a calendar of map-related events. It’s meant to cover conferences, talks, and similar events; exhibitions are more problematic because (1) there are so many of them and (2) their lifespan is measured in months, not days, so they’d clutter up the calendar in short order. So I’m leaving exhibitions off for the time being.

This calendar relies on reader submissions; without them, it’ll be kind of empty. It’s kind of empty right now. So send me an event already, why don’t you?

It’s an embedded Google Calendar, so the usual features apply, including subscriptions in Atom/XML and iCal formats.

Let’s see if this works.

Update: Adam Estrada has used Yahoo Pipes to produce a map of the calendar events. Neat!
