Spatial Awareness
Welcome to Spatial Awareness, a regular editorial focused on the maps and the spatial community. Each issue I highlight the most interesting and inspiring things that I’ve found — cool demos, new tools, tutorials, beautiful maps, interviews, behind-the-scenes and more.

Hey! Robin here, and with a slightly different format than usual.
Today’s issue is a special one. Why? Well, because I’ve just launched a new Spatial Awareness website! On it you can find all the previous content featured in the newsletter, as well as new original content that you can’t find anywhere else.

I’ve wanted to create a proper home for everything featured in the newsletter for a long time now, and it feels good to finally have it out there for everyone to enjoy.
To kick things off, I have published two original posts to give you a taste of what’s to come. The first is a fascinating interview with spatial artist Craig Taylor. I won’t spoil it, but it’s safe to say that it’s well worth the read. 👌

The second post is a hand-picked collection of all the “very spatial” people I can personally recommend you follow on Twitter. This is a huge list of people; some of whom I have featured in the newsletter, and others who are yet to be featured. All of them are producing and sharing quality content that’ll keep you inspired — they are well worth your time.

Aside from that, you can dig through the entire backlog of featured community content from the newsletter in one easy place. I’ll also be using that space to continuously feature new content from the community as I come across it, regardless of whether it gets into the newsletter. But don’t worry, I’ll do a periodic roundup of the best bits here in the newsletter as usual.
On the whole, the new website has been a long time coming. I’ve wanted a place to post content on a regular basis, in a format that takes less of my time, as the normal newsletter format takes a lot of time and energy. I’m hoping that the website solves this problem and allows me to share more, and to share it more often.
So please, check out the site when you can — I’d love to hear what you think.
See you in the next one! 👋
