Odds and Ends

Firstly, I’m not so sure about that last post. The order of a choropleth legend seems trivial to me, for one. For another, as someone on twitter pointed out, we are mostly used to seeing the high value on the bottom and as someone else on twitter mentioned, low to high is a common way to present numbers.

Second, the New York Times has an interesting article, “Freelance Scholars: A Nomadic Lot” that talks about one scholar’s decision to quit her professorship to move to Rome and build a cartographic history of the urban development of Rome. She wrote a book on the subject titled The Waters of Rome.

Third, the GISCI has updated their homepage to include information about the poster contest. Don’t forget, submissions are allowed all during March, with the last day being March 31.
