I’ve shared a collection of 4 @observablehq notebooks about drawing and animating 'waterlines'—an old technique for showing water in maps—in JavaScript

Old + new #dataviz #maps mash-up: a thread…
Waterlines are a beautiful feature of western 19th Century maps – ripples or waves radiating out from the coastline…
Though they aren’t the only way to draw water – water appears as *so many* different kinds of graphics in maps of the past…

Thanks to @kimbiddulph it’s #Archaeology31 time again! - Starting with prompt number one: #new.

Which in this case is: New year, new journal. Empty pages waiting to be filled with thoughts, notes, sketches ... opportunities. Image
#Archaeology31 day 2, #future, offers a great chance to highlight a topic I found particularly interesting as of late:

How will an #ArchaeologyOfTheFuture look like - What do *we* leave behind for future colleagues?
