Spatial Reader

Email digest of all things spatial, remote sensing, and GIS

Happy December! This is a brick of a newsletter - full of links! I hadn’t sent out an edition of Spatial Reader for a while because I didn’t think I’d saved many articles to send - but I was clearly wrong. I think this is the longest one yet. It starts out with some great bits of mapping and spatial analysis in the news, has some nice articles about techniques and processing in the middle, and then finishes with a bunch of articles about coding. As always, if you have feedback, feel free to reply and let me know what you’d like to see in these newsletters! See you next time.

U.S. Election Maps
For those of us in the United States, this election will be talked about, and mapped, for a long time.
