British Cartographic Society/Google UK Election Competition

4th July, 2015

Despite being busy, busy, busy as usual I managed to squeeze in some time to enter the UK 2015 General Election mapping competition run jointly by the British Cartographic Society and Google.



The competition is a one-off award for 2015 to recognise one of the most mapped events of the year. Preference will be given to online mapping, but I thought I'd do my bit for more traditional map-making - ie drawn by hand rather than produced using a GIS (Geographical Information system).

You never know, that trophy could still come my way......
