The primary aim is to celebrate the amazing world & cosmos we live in .... how it has developed over 13.8 billion years. In doing so we might take more care of it for future generations.
The secondary aim is to describe the ways we record and map all these objects and features.
These pages are a personal take, having worked in the mapping industry for over 40 years, I witnessed a massive transformation of that industry over that time.
See the overview page for a short summary of the topics and current status of page restoration following the migration to v3 of the site
It is hoped that anyone within an interest in the landscape and how it has evolved will find something of interest here as well as those intersted in mapping. As much as I would like it is not a test ground for new mapping appraches [at least not yet!]
ALPHA v3.0 release: This initial release is primarily for test purposes. Therefore the content is far from complete at this stage.
Future releases will extend content to recover to the level of v2.0 in terms of pages and page content. Occasionally page layout or style might change but URLs should remain static.
Restoration of the pages from version 2. This will be undertaken in a number of small steps - hopefully a few pages each month.
Additional material will be added to the maps, features and other sections once this has been achieved.
The primary site author is Keith Murray - supported by ex colleages and friends from the world of geoinformation.
