NPS Maps video

As part of the Yosemite Nature Notes video series, they have posted a nice little video on maps. It includes interviews with staff, but also outsiders like Ken Burns. After talking about how great maps are and how fun they are to read, they start talking about how to expand the park boundaries. The whole 10 minute conversation may help some readers see how serious maps can become as policy or intellectual representations.

As an aside, the National Park Service appears to be on the verge of having a new director, Jon Jarvis.
