Episode 36

After all the fluff and nonsense New Zealand has a new coalition government, we take a look at the coalition’s policies and ask what might it mean for our industry here in NZ.  Plus we take a look at local and international news from rendering thousands on polygons on the fly using Mapbox to submitting maps for the 2018 GeoHipster calendar.
