we can help Nat case this joint

Minneapolis-based cartographer Nat Case, who grew up in Lawrenceville, is in
town for a few days. He's been exploring by bike, doing fieldwork/research for 
the upcoming and long-awaited Princeton bike map to be published later this year.

The project was initiated by PBAC and was one of several applicants chosen
for funding by the Mass Transit Trust Fund this year.

Nat was for many years affiliated with Hedberg Maps whose popular
"Professor Pathfinderbrand of college-town maps indirectly led to PBAC
making the connection. Gotta love their slogan: "Life's Too Short for Bad Maps".

Nat's many published maps include the Minneapolis Bicycle Map and the 
Albert Hinds Walking Tour map created for the Historical Society. He is also
an eloquent proponent of the art of mapmaking, as evidenced by his essays 
here and (especially) here, or on his blog.

Should you have any suggestions, questions, or over-arching strategic visions
for putting Princeton's streets and trails on the bike map, feel free to email us:
