Investing in mapsEric left a comment a couple of days ago that is worth repeating (so, I will):

I didn't expext this to be reposted, but I am glad, and I wanted to make an additional point anyway.
The current shortage of mappers in North America (and I suspect the rest of the world?) provides evidence that O mappers are in fact not paid nearly enough to satisfy demand, to say nothing about the non supply/demand factors such as skills, standards, conditions, and lifestyle.
Latvia has too many mappers - it is not uncommon that two mappers map one and the same area at almost one and the same time. Then again, Latvian mappers probably charge much less than what mappers are normally paid in the US.Post a Comment
