2018 promises to be a busy year. ‘The Baghdad Set’ is 75% completed and is currently under consideration by Palgrave Macmillan. Meanwhile, the HGIS project (GEOHISTINT) is finally under way, with its own website at <geohistint.adrianosullivan.com> and registration at the University of South Africa as an MSc thesis subject. Work is progressing on QGIS software familiarisation and the acquisition of contemporary basemaps. Cooperation continues with Dr Claire Hubbard-Hall of Bishop Grosseteste University on various joint geospatial and other projects. We hope to copublish a major article on the landscape of German intelligence later this year.
