13th December 2012, at the National Library of Scotland in Edinburg during conference “Working digitally with Historical Maps” Bruce Gittings, Vice-Chair of the Royal Scottish Geographical Society presented Petr Přidal, founder of Klokan Technologies with the Bartholomew Globe for a significant and enduring contribution to online mapping.

Taking his speech, Mr. Gittings said : “Petr has been responsible for innovative software tools including GDAL2Tiles, MapTiler (which permits the seamlessly rendering of maps), IIPImage which provides streaming of high-resolution images, geographical search with MapRank and crowd-sourced georeferencing with Georeferencer.

There is no doubt that his work ‘bounced’ the traditional field of historical cartography into the 21st century, underpinning many of the projects we are hearing about today.”
