How do your surroundings influence and/or encourage you in your daily routine as a cartographer.
How do you manage to motivate yourself?
Can we help others to obtain that ”get up and go” feeling?
You’re only as good as your last project. How do we keep the ball rolling?

N.B. Fun comments are just as welcome as serious ones. In actual fact it may be ‘humour’ that keeps us all sane and in work!
Anybody know any crazy cartographers anywhere?

Best wishes to all,
Kevin Paul

I had started a topic similar to this a while back,

http://www.cartotalk...topic=3495&st=0

I have switched offices since then,
Not the most tidy workspace, but it works for me!

Nice idea! Here's my workspace. The framed maps are cut-outs from a book on the history of cartography. I have a sticky note from my mom that says "Great work!" up on my bulletin board. She had put it on one of my many chapter drafts that she edited for my cartography book. :) I also have some laminated field guides up that make me think that maybe I'll make it out of this office some day... Also a quote from Alan Weiss and some pics from a recent Landscape Architecture magazine.

I had not realized until I took this photo, but near my computer (where I'll see them more) I've got family pix and drawings from my kids. Further from my computer are the work-related certificates and awards. Guess that shows what I really want to see while I'm here!

When I first saw the picture, I thought I was your office... I was jealous!

I'm still am, but not at you ;)

Way to clean for me. Must be out of work.

When I have a spare moment to clean, I'll post my workspace. Currently there are lots of piles on their way to files.

That gave me a chuckle :lol:
My own work area is slightly cluttered and probably rather dull for others to see. B)

speaking of office walls...
A client in British Columbia just sent me this picture. They made a rather nice wall display with a map I did for them

Excellent! And if the power goes out, you map will have its own spotlight.

Maybe we are like the matter & anti-matter twins in that old Star Trek episode
and If we actually find ourselves in the same place, we will both be thrown forever into a weird TRON-like map dimension!
