Oh, great list. Thanks nickyske!

I'd add Pathological Geomorphology to the list.

This is brilliant. I think the word "geograpjhy" scared most people off - this is more like world culture. Brilliant, in any case. :)

That's a nice list, and I'm going to pass it onto my friend that works over at RSGIS. In the meantime, would it be out of line to ask that the initial link to mapperz.blogspot.com be cleaned up to NOT include the additional Google Reader feed stuff?

Speaking as someone who's number 15 on the list ...

The problem I have with such lists is that they seem to be done largely to get the people on such lists to link back to their site. You will notice that the originators of the list (not Mapperz) have very little to do with cartography or geography. To me, this looks like an exercise in SEO -- which is why I didn't reprint it or link to it when they e-mailed me about it, the same day it went up on Mapperz.

Lots of blogs in there on urbanism, too. Really great stuff.

This is me, delightedly "SQUEEEE!" -ing like a little girl. My wife and toddler are a trifle alarmed. Helluva way to spend my day off.

I was about to say Metafilter has a resident cartographile, but McWetboy already introduced himself.

I'm more like a carto-fetishist.

These are cool! Surprised there aren't more comments. Anybody who doesn't appreciate geography and maps can get lost for all I care. And probably will. (see what I did there?)

Thanks for the links! :)
