And the conference is over. Above - the vendors dismantle their displays.

The day - the conference, in fact - seemed to go by quickly. Today - breakfast with Tom Koch, followed by a panel discussion on mapping technologies (with your truly) followed by the CCA annual general meeting.

It was informative and exciting to hear and see what others are doing in the mapping world, some of which I will post about in the coming days. It was also good to see familiar colleagues and to hear much encouragement and positive reinforcement about this blog. Thank you all very much.

And on the drive home I came across this:
Already more than 6 years old and looking worse for wear, this map of Canada was painted on the side of a highway restaurant. It is intended to depict the route of the Trans-Canada Trail which passes nearby but it is already getting hard to read. This is what I call the Kaladar projection (I see that Google Maps is using new icons).
