about-01-01Derived from the blending of graphics, art, and cartography, welcome to Graphicarto.  An outlet for geographic thought, and insights on geodesign, graphic design, and visualization, this is a blog that aims to discuss current events, cutting edge trends, and new technologies in the world of spatial analysis, graphic design, data visualization, and cartography.

From the perspective of a practicing modern day Cartographer, GIS Specialist and Data Visualization Instructor working in the field, and from that of a freelance entrepreneur whose random semi-geographic projects, applications, and side thoughts never end, the topics on this blog will be diverse.

Hopefully reading will occasionally expose an insight, or at least spark a couple creative responses.
