Maps Represent the World
  • Contested meanings maps are texts to be
    decoded

Not only is it easy to lie with maps, its
essential. To portray meaningful relationships
for a complex, three-dimensional world on a flat
sheet of paper or a video screen, a map must
distort reality. Mark Monmonier How to Lie with
Maps (1996) All maps, in one sense are lies since
they involve a massive partial (mis)representation
of the solid world on a smaller object.Maps do
show us the lie of the land, in the multiple
sense of the word lie. John Rennie Short The
World through Maps A History of Cartography
(2003)

Decoding Maps

    round world on a flat surface
  • Scale maps compress, scale is the measure of
    compression
  • Orientation the directionality of a map
  • Symbols make visible the features, places, and
    other locational information represented on the
    map.
