Episode 49

We’re back after a 6-week break – you know you’ve missed us!

In the news in this episode, we celebrate Open Street Map’s 14th Birthday, we wonder if GIS is mainstream and consider if Google is out to annoy flat earthers. Plus in Topic of the Week we fall in love all over again with the paper map.  Export to Shapefile makes a welcome return.
