Welcome to another edition of Digital Cartography – the place where we try to convey the latest cartographic narratives published across the Internet, But before we start, it is with great pleasure that we welcome our latest sponsor for this space, ((o))EcoLab.

For those of you not familiar, they’re the team behind amazing journalistic projects such as InfoAmazonia and OXpeckers – both previously featured here on Visual Loop – , the Geojournalism Handbook and the JEO WordPress Theme – a theme that acts as a geojournalism platform which allows news organizations, bloggers and NGOs to publish news stories as layers of information on digital maps.

We thank them for their support, and now lets move on to the digital maps of the week:
