One of our regular episodes in which we catch up our projects, and discuss the geonews. Ed is a week away from some much-needed holiday, but first racing to close out a project for a new large enterprise client at OpenCage. Meanwhile Steven is back from a week in the country and enjoying having Arnaud helping him on Mappery.
We dive into the recent geonews, starting with Lego word maps. The common theme in this month's geonews is that the neogeo scene is growing up: OSM makes it on the Guardian homepage, Mapbox employees form a union, India cracks down on Twitter India showing "incorrect" maps. Finally we discuss the recent article from Joe Morrisson.
Have a great summer, everyone.
