For Map lovers, something totally worth reading again from MapLab at Wired. Follow the link and see how people obsess about map projections.

As of May 7th 2013 #MapBox & #OSM have made available the new Mapping Editor for OpenStreetMap.org
This thing look impressive. I think it’ll make huge difference around the world, and I know many people and organizations relying on OSM for Humanitarian Assistance Projects.
