H615: Location Complication: Geography and Mapmaking in Splash Spring 2019 (Apr. 27, 2019)
Your classrooms are filled with maps and globes, but have you ever thought about the process that goes into illustrating our world? Geography is so much more than just countries, borders, and cities, it’s about knowing what’s out there and why it matters. Without geography you’re nowhere! In this session, we will explore what makes an effective map, how mapmaking is inherently imperfect, and how maps influence the way we perceive the world and ourselves. We’ll even try our hand at creating projections from a globe! By the end of this session, you’ll see that cartography is really cooltography!
