Note: Welcome to this new content section we are beginning. As the name suggest, the ‘Monthly Maps’ series will do a monthly aggregation of all the maps, map codes, and map news that we loved and flagged during the month concerned (and not necessarily those that were published in the month concerned). Apologies for the late publication of the June 2013 edition. We hope you will enjoy this one and keep following the future editions.
The biggest international news this month was the ‘discovery’ of PRISM and associated technological systems being used by the Government of USA for global media surveillance. WikiLeaks and friends created a very informative map of snooping activities by governments across the world.
And, the OpenStreetMap community went ahead and mapped a secret data center of the National Security Agency of USA being contructed outside Salt Lake City, Utah.
