    1. Jesse and Sue,

      Thanks very much for tonight’s podcast! This is such an innovative and impressive use of the technology, I’d like to link it for my class on digital cartography!

      You list Krygier’s book Making Maps. We’re actually using this as our course textbook and it elaborates on many of the ideas you mention and that are mentioned in your links (Geographer’s Craft etc.). It’s very visual and shows do’s as well as dont’s. I assigned it originally as a supplement, but the class seems to like it better than our main textbook.
