I'm about to graduate next spring with a major in architecture and a minor in urban planning. I've been thinking about applying to grad schools for urban planning (architecture is too.. head in the clouds for my tastes ).
But I loooove maps, and I've loved them all my life. I'm learning GIS now and it's awesome, and I'd say I want to do that but I don't think I want to do programming and I don't know how well I'd fare with database stuff. But I love cartography, and map design, and map readability, and I wrote a paper about subway maps just for fun, but I have no idea where I need to go to pursue this further.
Any advice from the cartographers out there?
