Fans of clever cartography are in for a treat – this week Steven interviews Eric Rodenbeck and Alan McConchie of Stamen
, a well known data visualization and map design company. Over the years Stamen has created so many beautiful, thought-provoking, and widely used maps. Most recently they produced the design for Facebook’s new OpenStreetMap-based, global base map. The discussion is wide-ranging and covers the history of the business, the role of cartographers in the digital age, working with OpenStreetMap, mapping tools like Field Papers, their favourite projects, and much more.
