Capitalism Nature Socialism could use the expertise of a cartographer who would be willing to produce gray-scale maps to accompany published manuscripts. The maps would be specific to a manuscript and/or be a single map showing all the places featured in a journal issue. Something akin to the work of Philippe Rekacewicz of Le Monde Diplomatique would be desirable, but the cartographical style sought is fairly open and does not have to be conventional. Due to limited funds, the pay would be relatively meagre, at USD 50 per map (for a maximum of USD 400 per year). If you are interested, please post me a message firstname.lastname@example.org.
Otherwise, cartograpical works are most welcome that cover any of the themes described below and that use approaches similar, for instance, to those of the Counter-Cartographies Collective (http://www.countercartographies.org/). Such work would be treated as any other manuscript in that it would undergo a peer-review process. Unfortunately, cartographical submissions must be in gray-scale only and fit into a standard 22 x 28 cm page (8.5 x 11”). If interested, please submit your work throughhttp://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/rcns.
Capitalism Nature Socialism is a journal published by Taylor & Francis four times per year. It is dedicated to promoting ecosocialism and ecofeminism and serves as a forum for red-green politics, left anticapitalist and Indigenous Peoples’ movements, (house/care)workplace struggles, land/community struggles, and related themes (yes, this list departs from that on the official website... working on changing it). Among the journal objectives is to facilitate integrating discussions on working-class, feminist, antiracist, and environmental movements. Works on ecology and socialism are particularly welcome, including from the natural sciences. For the most recent journal content, see http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/rcns20/current.
Next Friday (March 2nd) at noon, Byron Clayton, Geographer with the BLM, will give a colloquium. He will discuss the BLM’s work on migrating land status records to a spatial environment, a multi-year project that has employed many PSU GIS grads. Come learn what your colleagues are doing!
All are welcome, and we'll provide snacks! It will be in PSU's Cramer Hall, Room 413.

Application Deadline: May 2012
WeoGeo has created a one-stop web based marketplace for mapping. It supplies surveyors, engineers, cartographers, and scientists with the ability to conveniently store, search, and exchange high-resolution CAD and GIS mapping products. Map authors easily list their data for sale. Researchers quickly find the data they need.
Position Description & Qualifications:
The main goal of this position will be to create and maintain data listings for WeoGeo’s clients. A listing is a web representation of a geo-dataset ( example - http://market.weogeo.com/datasets/
tiger_oregon_census_tracts_block_groups_blocks_tigerline_2009). You will be exposed to several leading GIS software packages (ESRI’s ArcGIS suite, Pitney Bowes’ MapInfo product, ITT’s ENVI, and Safe’s FME Server), many geo-data formats (ESRI Shape, MapInfo TAB, ENVI, …), and cutting edge web mapping technologies (MapNik, OpenLayers,..). Prior knowledge in any of these is a plus but is not required. However, an ability to demonstrate a basic understanding of GIS and cartographic principals is required. Scripted programming experience (Python, Ruby, bash) is desired but not critical.
Start Date: As soon as possible.
Hours per Week: Ideally this is a full time position. But will consider well-qualified interns.
Company Contact Information: To apply, email resume and cover letter to:
