Journal of Maps Best Map 2013

Friday, 10 January, 2014

It is with great pleasure I can announce that the paper “Relief-Rock-Soil relationship in the transition of Atlantic Plateau to Peripheral Depression, Sao Paulo, Brazil” by Fernando Nadal Junqueira Villela, Jurandyr Luciano Sanches Ross and Sidneide Manfredini has been given the Journal of Maps “Best Map” award for 2013. This paper has now been made free access so please click the link and take a look.

Those papers short listed for best map are assessed upon both their academic content and cartographic quality. It is neither the best academic paper nor the best designed map, but a combination of qualities from both areas that is judged the winner. The awards panel noted that this year winner provides a substantive, clear and well presented sequence of maps with supportive information. A worthy winner!
