About this Event

As an ancient and intricate city, London is awash in maps: useful, intriguing, beautiful – even profitable for those in the know. But as tools to understand and shape cities, even digital maps can be frustrating in their overlaps, gaps and attempts to stay up to date.

#MapLondon will help connect the dots: Through a half-day conference, online connections and ‘next steps’ projects, Coherent Cities and partners bring together the people who populate, design and use digital maps to interpret the many factors influencing cities.

Our lively line-up includes:

  • London Chief Digital Officer Theo Blackwell MBE
  • Ordnance Survey Director of Innovation Miranda Sharp
  • Connected Cities Catapult's Euan Mills
  • Arup Urban Design Lead Sowmya Parthasarathy

and many others. Find out more about the event and poster competition at: https://www.coherentcities.com/maplondon/

Kindly hosted by Arup and supported in part by Commonplace, Future of London and Pollard Thomas Edwards, #MapLondon is a collaborative labour of love: the brainchild of PTE `````Senior Architect and FoL alumna Rebecca Lee, backed by Coherent Cities founder Lisa Taylor, #MapLondon includes crowd-sourced topics, open-source demo space, and is made possible in part by your ticket fees. Thank you - and see you on December 9th!

NOTE: If you are speaking or sponsoring - or win the poster competition! - your entry is of course free of charge.
