New Lines: Critical GIS and the Trouble of the Map

Matthew W. Wilson


New Lines considers a society increasingly drawn to the power of the digital map, examining the conceptual and technical developments of the field of geographic information science as this work is refracted through a pervasive digital culture. This book draws together archival research on the birth of the digital map with a reconsideration of the critical turn in mapping and cartographic thought.

Keywords: Cartography GIS spatial media mapping big data visualization history of geography design drawing attention
