Freelancer / Small Business Roundtable
Nat Case, INCase, LLC, Moderator

Starter questions:
How are independent and small business mapmakers adapting to the changing mapping environment? How are you integrating interactive and mobile development (or old-fashioned printed mapping) into your business model? How are you carving out niches of expertise, and maintaining those niches? What software and workflow are you using, and how do you see that changing? How are you getting the word out and finding clients? How has that changed and how do you expect that to change in future? Are you competing internationally, and have international freelance marketplaces affected you and your bottom line? Are you working with/for other cartographers or mapping firms, and what business structure for that kind of co-operation works for you? Any words of wisdom from more established freelancers/small businesses to people putting their toes in the water?
