In a variation of a top ten list for the past year, Ben Keene of the Oxford University Press lists a number of changes in the world that would require modifications to existing maps or the creation of new ones. Some of the items on his informal list include:
  • expansion of the European Union
  • Israeli withdrawl from the Gaza Strip
  • the ongoing conflict in Sudan’s Darfur region
  • name changes to South African provinces
  • addition of five major new airports
  • Myanmar’s relocation of its seat of government
and others. No mention of all those new streets and subdivisions being built throughout Canadian and the United States that seem to keep Navtec and TeleAtlas so busy.
