As I’ve noted, there are more of us who “stay in” our geography than those who happen upon it. LBS needs to cater to the “stay at homes” in a different way.

The Globe offers an article titled The Year in Maps, with the subhead: “A cartography boom offers new ways to see the world.”

I wonder, though, has there really been a cartography boom, or just more tools to make maps? Or is it the same thing?
