Cartographic Perspectives Issue #102 Released

Date posted: February 1, 2024


Cartographic Perspectives #102

From contract cartographers to research librarians to academics, this issue contains entries that speak eloquently across the breadth of our community and readership. The issue also contains four book reviews, three of which highlight our community’s ongoing need for reflexivity and care. No work can cover every perspective, but which perspectives we choose to elevate—what data we put on the map and how—matters.

If you are a student, or advise students, please keep your eyes out for a couple student positions we’ll be advertising in the coming months. They’ll be great opportunities to learn about journal editing and publishing.

As always, I am honored to serve as editor of Cartographic Perspectives. 2024 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for the journal and I look forward to working with our incredible team to bring the journal to you.
