There was a related question a while back that dealt with the top GIS blogs, but I'm also very interested in "academic" sources of GIS information. I'm currently updating my repository of information and am also considering some new journal subscriptions.
Every professional field has some big names and big articles. Who are the big names and what articles should everyone be aware of in GIS/cartography/remote sensing?
I'm looking for 3 things in particular:
1) Recommendations on the top sources for GIS articles - important/reliable journals.
2) Major articles from the past - those that paved the way towards the current state of our field.
3) Recent articles showcasing major findings/methodologies.
Bonus: I've recently been searching for a good source of information on cartographic design - any articles related to this would be a great help.
