What defines the GeoHipster?

Welcome to GeoHipster, a website you have probably never heard of. We are not entirely sure where this is going, but an identity-defining kick-off poll seems like a good place to start.

What defines the GeoHipster? Help us find out by responding to the survey below. ([UPDATE January 24, 2014] Poll tally is here, the poll was closed on January 24, 2014.)

Thanks for all the suggestions. (41 from the 45 attributes came from visitor suggestions. Crowdsourcing, yo.)

    Just saying that any work with projections outside of d3 by definition makes you NOT a geohipster. Defining your own projection involves WAYYYYYY too much math and a deep knowledge of geodesy for a hipster. That level of knowledge makes you more of a geo dark mage….

      I agree with you in general. I think we should also agree that the term “GeoHispter” is not well defined yet. Hopefully this website and this poll will gather sufficient data for a definition to begin to emerge.
