GIS Lounge Rebuts Spence

GIS Lounge responds to Mary Spence’s complaint about computer mapping: “What she fails to recognize is that online mapping, particularly efforts such as Google Maps and Yahoo! Maps and other online mapping applications have opened up access to geographic data not previously accessible to many. … I would counter that the growth in popularity of online mapping has increased geographic awareness and the ability to read and decipher geographic data.” Via Slashgeo.
