Challenger Map Back on Display, Sort Of
The amazing Challenger Map, the giant relief map of British Columbia that was on display at the Pacific National Exhibition until 1997 but has since languished in storage, is back on display, sort of. The Vancouver Sun reports that eight of its 196 sections have been painted, assembled and put on display in the atrium of the RCMP’s Vancouver Integrated Security Unit building in Richmond, a Vancouver suburb. The panels are being used to show diginitaries and security personnel the topography of the Vancouver and Whistler area, but for security reasons will not be accessible to the public during the Olympics. They’re still looking for a permanent home for the entire map. Thanks to Melissa Edwards for the link.
