Hello Spatially Challenged readers! Thank you for being here! I just wanted to post a quick year-in-review to highlight some of the changes that happened on this blog over the last 12 months.
This year I have written 16 blog posts on a broad range of topics, including learning, data visualization, and open data sets. I also updated my About Me page and added a new stable page for Publications that is accessible from the main website menu– I encourage you to check them both out!
Spatially Challenged has been viewed more than 2200 times in 2021! Around half of the views have come from users in the US, and folks from over 90 countries have read Spatially Challenged posts this year alone. The most-read article in 2021 was about converting between different forms of latitude and longitude, including decimal degrees and degrees-minutes-seconds. We’ve also seen an uptick in likes, subscribers, and comments– thank you!
2021 has also meant a return to the office, at least on occasion, and many in-person conferences and Extension events– thank you Haleigh Ortmeier-Clarke for making sure these events were well-documented with many photos! This year I also published one article in Agronomy Journal and two in CSA News. I have two accepted articles at Crop, Forage, and Turfgrass Management that are currently available for early viewing– they’ll be published early next year!
Thank you all for reading and sharing posts from Spatially Challenged. Later this month I’ll share some more professional news and some plans for what readers can expect in 2022. Happy new year!
