Topo Maps on the Radio

by Laura Findlay

Dear Zoo,

Here’s a Q. Have you ever thought about maps? I like maps. Cartography. That word runs a shiver down my spine. Now days, I say like a 90 year old, we have Google maps, milliseconds from our fingertips, covering the world over. Maps seem so trivial.

But there are still non-Googlified maps. Still cartographers. I love bumbling into a discussion about a profession I’ve never thought of.

Listen here (or read) and learn about the topographic map makers of New Zealand.

Yours on Thursday,

Laura
