Fans of clever cartography are in for a treat - this week Steven interviews Eric Rodenbeck and Alan McConchie of Stamen, a well known data visualization and map design company. Over the years Stamen has created so many beautiful, thought-provoking, and widely used maps. Most recently they produced the design for Facebook's new OpenStreetMap-based, global base map. The discussion is wide-ranging and covers the history of the business, the role of cartographers in the digital age, working with OpenStreetMap, mapping tools like Field Papers, their favourite projects, and much more.
Every week we discuss themes from the geo industry, interview Geomob speakers, and provide regular updates about our own projects.
