Hello there-
Yesterday I came across the following Weblogs on Cartography which I found quite interesting:

* Maproom http://www.mcwetboy.net/maproom/
* Webmapper http://www.webmapper.net/

Do you guys know of any other good Cartography Blogs?

following a couple of links from those blogs turned up some interesting sites on design pirates on the web:

http://www.pirated-sites.com/

by a web designer, Tim Murtaugh.

But the implications for online cart or website that showcase a portfolio surely apply.

He also had this piece about image security on websites:

http://www.o2b.net/a...es/image-theft/

In our world we may think of it as "compilation", but gotta be real careful that you aren't stealing by having multiple sources. People do design falsities into their work to protect their copyright.

Has anyone seen similar examples with cart? If so let's post'em.

cheers, and watch out for Da Pirates,

rob

Any good map/cartography (maybe GIS) blogs around? I just started to dig into it the other day, and I found a few.

Map Room blog
Web Mapper
Vector One (GIS)

And my blog? Only in my dreams... :)

Hugo,

There was already a thread on map blogs here, so I sort of hijacked your post and added it here.
