BTW, do we have any roads named in honor of any cartographers, I haven't found one in India yet.
Searching Google maps turned up "Mercatorstrasse" both in Duisburg an Frankfurt am Main, both Germany.
In Aarau, Switzerland, there's an Imhofstrasse, but I'm not sure if it's named after the cartographer Eduard Imhof or some other Imhof.
Guillaume-Henri Dufour was a Swiss general but also the author of the first detailed map of all of Switzerland (at 1:50'000, I believe), he has streets and squares named after him in a whole bunch of Swiss cities. Plus the Dufourspitze, the highest point in Switzerland at 4636 m a.s.l. (one of the summits of the Monte Rosa) ...
So I guess there are quite a few places named in honour of cartographers. (Counting geologists, too, who after all produce their own maps, would lead to quite a few more, the highest mountain of Canada, Mount Logan, among them...)
