Book Description

The “mapness of maps” - how maps live in interaction with their users, and what this tells us about what they are and how they work.

From the mechanics of maps used for navigation to the differences and similarities between maps and pictures and models, this is a cognitive map in its own right, charting the way to a new understanding of what maps mean.
