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

Has it been two weeks already?! I could have sworn the last issue was sent only a few days ago. Then again, I’ve been moving house the past few weeks so everything feels like a blur. Fortunately we’re in the new house now and things are finally starting to settle down, even if we don’t have a sofa yet… or really much furniture at all for that matter!
The new bi-weekly approach has gone down well based on the response to the previous issue, so thanks for telling me what you think. I’ve found it helpful to have this slower schedule, especially as things have been a little crazy lately. I’m hoping to find a nice rhythm with the newsletter over the next few issues now things are calmer.
So as always, sit back and join me on this periodic journey through the world of maps. And remember, you can unsubscribe at any point if you’re not finding this useful.
One last thing — you can reply directly to me via this email if you have content suggestions, questions, or just want to say hi. Lots of you have done this so far. Don’t be shy! 👋
