Exciting Times for Mapping

A local second grade class is going to start a geography unit in February and I was asked to give a talk to them. While mulling over the various things I could teach, it dawned on me that this is a very exciting time for maps. I don’t have to go in there, pull down a U.S. map from the wall, and proceed to point to it while naming off the states and their capitals in a Ben Stein Bueller voice. Indeed, there are a lot of really cool things to discuss…

They’re going to love it. These are good times for our profession I think. Don’t you?
