A rose by any other name–New Mappings Collaboratory

Although we seem to have chosen the name New Mappings Collaboratory as our name (see our site) I can’t help but feel we could do better. I quite like the Collaboratory bit, but I wonder if somebody looking at the name would have the right idea about what we do.

I’ve used things like New Spatial Media in the past but feel that “media” is a bit old hat now. I also like “open” (obviously). The Dean said he was surprised we didn’t have “space” in the title. Perhaps we should be the Open Space/Spatial Collaboratory?

  1. Perhaps the word “digital” should/could be in there too? “Digital Mappings Collaboratory”?
