Map Maker Islamabad, Pakistan

By April 2, 2009 One Comment

At the AAG this year in Las Vegas there was a lot of talk on the power of the crowd, the ethics of profiteering from volunteered geographic information and various other deep discussions on what on earth is happening now the general public is able to make maps.

We are not going to delve into the debate at the moment due to a distinct lack of coffee on our part and a need to sit back and have a bit of a rethink on the whole Neogeography thing.

That said, we do really like the timelapse movies that are possible out of Google’s Map Maker initiative, embedded above is Islamabad, Pakistan.
