Thank you from Mapping Center! 2011

By Aileen Buckley, Mapping Center Lead


In light of the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday, we want to take the opportunity to thank all of you for your use and support of Mapping Center. Since the start of this year, we’ve received 500 Ask a Cartographer questions (almost 23% of the total number of questions we’ve gotten since we first opened this web site in 2007!) We’ve also received about 100 comments. Thank you for getting in touch with us with your questions, comments, concerns and suggestions!

To help you, we’ve posted over 60 blog entries. We’ve added new content to all our pages. We’ve also expanded our team, adding Dr. Kenneth Field to the fold in April.

We know we can do more, so we are hard at work redesigning the site to better help you. If you have any suggestions about the site design or content, be sure to send us your comments below. We’d be interested to hear what you think would help you.
We also want to take this opportunity to thank the many, many people who are responsible for helping you through this web site including the following (apologies if we have forgotten anyone):

Thanks to everyone above, but mostly, thanks to you — our readers — because without you, none of this would happen!
