I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

@martinf As far as I can tell, based on the meta post, I'm on the right site (my question is not a programming one, but purely from the perspective of an end user)

comment What Makes a Map Beautiful?
Swiss topographic maps are still the most beautiful in the world, in my not so humble opinion.

comment Free download of Soviet topographic maps (also known as Genshtab maps)
Nice! I see this is mostly (but not exclusively) the former Soviet union and satellite states, which is the most relevant because it's where often no alternatives are available. But other answers are still welcome, too.
