Reading a map is trickier than you might expect. While maps casually present themselves as a visualization of reality, the truth is, they aren’t. All maps are imperfect models of natural and cultural features on the surface of the Earth. Reading a map involves understanding how a map maker has chosen to represent these features and, of equal importance, what they have left out. Join Geospatial Services Librarian John Clark on Zoom for a guided tour through a variety of different historical and contemporary maps as he explains some common principals used by cartographers. This session will be repeated Thursday February 3rd.
