This post has two main sections: A semi-serious reflection on the problem space of tools for mapping, and then a fun overview of all sorts of mapping tools and techniques, informed by discussion and sharing that took place at the inaugural Map Camp.

A Reflection on Mapping Tools

I hold two conflicting views on sophisticated mapping tools.

  • Well-designed tools can accelerate the learning process exponentially.
  • If tools can reduce the friction of the mapping process, then more energy can be devoted to questions that matter, such as, “Why here over there?”
  • Mapping tools with a disposition towards becoming a commodity could unleash a faster pace through the Strategy Cycle (efficiency enables innovation, after all).
