  • Maps as social constructions : power, communication and visualization
  • Cartography ; Communication ; Map ; Power
  • Two developments in cartography mark an epistemic break with the assumption that maps are unproblematic communication devices. These are 1) investigations of maps as practices of power-knowledge, and 2) geographic visualization which uses the map's
