Very Interesting Web Sites

As you might know, The State of the Map conference in the UK just completed July 15. Although it’s all UK based, they had some very interesting topics. I had been watching the site as I really wanted to get the slides for one presentation titled "Why Mash-ups Suck (and Cartography Matters)" by Richard Fairhurst. Anyhow, I went to the site today and they have wiki that not only has the slides, but also had an audio recording of most if not all of the presentations! Very cool.

Also thought I’d pass on a link given to me by a presenter at BAAMA yesterday. http://hindsight.trulia.com. It allows you to look at different areas and get a better understanding of how they developed. Just the way the data are delievered and the design are very interesting. The temporal aspect of the site and how its integrated into the maps is very cool.
