Homage to Bart O' Farrell

Going to be presenting at FOSS4G on Thursday in Swansea at the University of Wales Trinity St David and realised this institute was originally called 'West Glamorgan Institute of Higher Education (Wiggy) as we called it then back in the 80s where I was a student in Graphic Design.  On reflection... I wondered what happened to some of those lecturer's and in particular Bart O'Farrell. In homage to this great welsh artist and character I'm posting the only interview I can find of his career while it remains online. https://cornishbirdblog.com/bart-ofarrell-wizard-on-the-lizard-full-unedited-interview/

MAPS CAN LIE - A map presents only one of many possible stories

Don't believe everything a map appears to show.  The Colour, the size and position of labels and the scale hierarchy of information can all be used to deceive you. https://www.outsideonline.com/outdoor-adventure/exploration-survival/how-maps-lie/
