I have been working for the last few months on an edited book project with Martin Turner and Mary McDerby in Manchester Computing. The book is going to be about new developments in geographic visualization and it emerged from a successful workshop we held in Manchester last June. We have been speaking to Wiley and they have just agreed to publish it. I hope it will be out by the end of 2007.

We have a strong line up of contributors and I really think it has potential to be a good volume.

The draft outline of the book is as follows:
