Double UCL success at Joint Cartographic Conference

Multiple plaudits for James and Oliver

Double UCL success at Joint Cartographic Conference

Two UCL Geography staff won major awards at the 2015 Joint Conference of the British Cartographic Society (BCS) and the Society of Cartographers (SoC), held in York in early September.

Dr James Cheshire, Lecturer in Quantitative Human Geography, was awarded The Stanfords Award for Printed Mapping, The John C. Bartholomew Award for Thematic Mapping and the top prize, The BCS Award, for his co-authored book (with Oliver Uberti), London: The Information Capital (Penguin)

Oliver O’Brien, Research Associate in Geography, won the Avenza Award for Electronic Mapping for Datashine, a mapping platform for the key 2011 Census variables in England and Wales. Oliver was also highly commended in the Google Award for 2015 Election Mapping.

The conference bought together map-makers, map users, and other enthusiasts to mix with delegates from commercial, academic and government organisations with a common interest in using and promoting maps as a valuable means of communication.
