Volume 41 of the Society of Cartographers Bulletin arrived by post on
Friday, and mighty fine it looks too, with it's enhanced colour section.
OSM is particularly well represented in this issue too.

Main articles include:
Geodata collection in the 21stC			Nick Black and Steve
Coast
Designing maps for the colour-vision impaired	Bernhard Jenny and
Nathaniel Vaughn Kelso
Open source renders the world				Artem Pavlenko
Musical maps: a musical approach to cartography	Brian Rogers
Design matters - time matters				Pam Baldaro
Mapping the sky						Daniel Thomas
Cartography and Google Earth				Steve Chilton

There are also 8 pages of cartography tips, plus map and book reviews,
and notes on meetings, exhibitions and conferences.
If you are not a member of the Society of Cartographers you can get all
this (and more benefits) by joining for a ridiculously low annual fee:

If you like the sound of all this you should also consider attending a
Society of Cartographers Summer School (or the upcoming Illustrator
workshop http://www.soc.org.uk/workshop.htm).

Summer school details at:
http://www.soc.org.uk/summersc.htm
Why not consider giving a paper at the summer school (there is already
one major OSM initiative being highlighted with a presentation in the
programme). 

If you want any further details don't hesitate to contact me.

Cheers
