What is it like to be a cartographer?

The British Cartographic Society highlights series of posts and videos on the field of cartography.  If you want an idea of what cartography was like in the 1950s, check out the video “A Cartographer’s Way in the 1950s

“.  To see how cartography has evolved, the Ordnance Survey blog takes a look at Cartography – from past to present.  Modern day cartography at the Ordnance Survey is examined in a two-part series: Focus on Cartography – part one and Focus on Cartography – part two.
