when the world maps to here

In September 2013 we celebrated "Maptember" in the UK, with a range of amazing geographic and mapping meetings taking place. This page records those events, but don't expect all these links to work.

All the Maptember t-shirts were sold, raising money for MapAction - look out for people wearing them at future conferences!
