The 2015 GeoHipster Wall Calendar makes a great holiday gift for the geogeek on your list, so pick up a few. The proceeds from the calendar sales will help GeoHipster offset our operational costs, stay ad-free, and maintain independence.
The 2015 GeoHipster Calendar is available for purchase from CafePress. All calendars are made to order (you need to specify January 2015 as Starting Month (as opposed to the default setting — the current month)).
The calendar features maps from the following map artists (screenshots below):
John Van Hoesen
IMPORTANT! The screenshot below is intended ONLY to give an overview of the overall layout — which map goes on which page, etc. When you order the 2015 calendar, you will get the 2015 calendar. You can verify this by reviewing each individual page online before you order.
We are planning to publish a 2015 GeoHipster wall calendar, and we invite you to submit your GeoHipstery maps or other images for the calendar (email to firstname.lastname@example.org). We will credit the authors, obviously.
The first submission (below) has come from Markus Mayr in Vienna, Austria (thanks, Markus!).
[UPDATE August 25, 2014] There is no deadline for submissions. We have received submissions from 12 authors [count updated 2014-09-13]. Submissions from the first 13 mapmakers will make it into the 2015 GeoHipster calendar.
Jonah Adkins from Newport News, Virginia was the second to submit. See his map below Markus’s.
GeoHipster launched six months ago. At the time we didn’t know what to expect, and where it was going. But the response has been encouraging, and we’ll keep forging full speed ahead.
First of all, I want to thank Glenn Letham for encouraging me to launch GeoHipster, and GISUser for the initial financial support. Next, I want to thank all interviewees who graciously agreed to answer my (sometimes silly) questions. I will be remiss if I didn’t specifically mention Renee Sieber, our first interviewee, who came up with the idea for the interview format. Thank you, Renee! Last but not least, a huge thank you goes out to all readers, commenters, tweeters, etc.
A growing number of volunteers are helping make GeoHipster ever more interesting. We have more great interviews coming up, as well as articles and other surprises. Any and all comments, suggestions, and critiques are welcome — just email me at email@example.com.
Finally, a few announcements. Firstly, we are planning to publish a 2015 GeoHipster wall calendar. We invite you to submit your GeoHipstery maps or other images for the calendar (email to firstname.lastname@example.org). We will credit the authors, obviously.
Secondly, we have a new logo (like the new design?), and have GeoHipster t-shirts for sale to help offset our costs. Show your support and GeoHipster pride in style.
