Carson Farmer's blog is a personal view of gis and sptio-temporal dynamics. Carson was based in St Andrews, but has now moved to New York. His blog covers a broad range of topics and often includes code snippets that should help developers overcome some issues in dealing with spatial data and performing spatial analysis.
There are a lot of bad maps out there. They lurk in brochures, on company websites, and in magazines. They confuse, they miscommunicate, and they make it hard to learn anything about the world. Sometimes they leave off Sicily. They’re made by people who have to rush against tight deadlines, by people who are pressured by their bosses or clients to make bad design choices because it “looks cool,” and by people who were thrust into map-making jobs without any training.
This blog looks at some good and some bad cartography explaining what when wrong and what went right.
Cartogrammer is a blog which focuses on the design elements of cartography. Cartogrammer is the blog of Andy Woodruff, a cartographer working as a developer for Axis Maps. Andy uses the blog to share his thoughts on cartography but also to highlight some of the "projects" that he has been working on in his spare time. There are some interesting discussion on the "do's" and "donts" of cartography and some nice examples in the projects section of the site.
