Just off the map
Presented by Giles Darkes
Maps are attractive, graphical summaries of the world, and without them we’d be lost. But there’s always more to a map than meets the eye, and a detailed map is the result of many decisions made by the cartographer.
What the cartographer has left out may be as important as what has been put in. In his talk, Giles will be looking at why maps might be considered a useful, agreed set of lies.
