Cartography - The Full Beginner's Guide

in #steemstem2 years ago (edited)

What's been up?

Old habits die hard. I did some digging recently, and decided to make a short post dedicated to my "Introduction to Cartography" series. I uploaded the twenty-sixth and final part almost nine months ago, and I can say that I miss my old ways. It's been a long time that I've been thinking about it, and now I am hopefully going to have enough spare time to get back to engineering blogging.

However, this time things might be a bit different. I used to talk about the various scientific fields I've been studying from an academic and highly theoretical perspective, but now I am also going to share my experiences as a professional researcher. But we will get back to this later.

For now, let me share this list with you.

My contribution to Cartography

This extensive series is literally my child, and all the knowledge shared stems from years of research and study. I did my best to ensure that this series is a source of reliable scientific information, and tried to simplify things as much as possible for the average reader.

SteemSTEM made me do it! Looking back, I am sure none of this would have been possible without the constant support of my favourite Scientific community on the Steem blockchain. I'm honoured, guys, thanks for everything.

Because I have a lot more to share with you.

Thanks for passing by

See you around!

Great to finally get this table of content! I have missed a few posts and I will be happy to read them later on (and I thus need a way to find them easily :) ).

I am also looking forward to read the next series :)

Thank you so much for all the support! Means a lot coming from you. Have a good one!

This is wonderful news @lordneroo! I am looking forward to reading your experiences as a cartographer 😍

Thank you so much for the words of encouragement and the constant support with sweet comments! You're the best!

Καιρό έχεις να μας εντυπωσιάσεις με αυτά τα υπέροχα post!!!

Γεια σου Νίκο!

Thanks for your wrap-up, @lordneroo. Awesome approach on digging for long forgotten steem gold. An on top of that I've never heard of SteemSTEM. I just don't quite find what I'm looking for, i.e. is there a way for hiding resteems?

Hey, thanks for passing by and reading! SteemSTEM is the biggest scientific community on the Steem blockchain. By the way, I think there is an option to hide resteems whenever you visit someone's profile.

I just read #1 and part of #2. I'm no engineer, but you speak my language. You help to explain why I love maps so much: it's another way of understanding. A spatial representation of information.
Funny thing is, I have very poor spatial visualization skills, and yet I love maps. Maybe because they help me to "see".
You can be sure I will read every other installment.

Thank you for the words of encouragement, I'm glad you enjoyed my work.
