CDRC in the news

On Thursday 23 July 2015 Deputy Director of the Consumer Data Research Centre, Dr James Cheshire, was invited to the Sky News studio to be interviewed live on the channel’s flagship evening programme Sky News Tonight.

His expertise was required to discuss the novel methods – such as horse-drawn sledges, barges and local trekkers – Google have deployed to bring Street View to the more inaccessible parts of the world.  James was also asked to comment on the value and utility of so-called “traditional” printed maps in an era of digital mapping.
