Mapping, Society, and Technology: Exploring relationships among maps, society, and technology (Steven Manson)

Explore how maps reflect the interaction between society and technology while learning how to read, utilize, and create maps.

A trillion-dollar industry and a crucial tool for both scientific and artistic exploration are mapping. People, companies, and governments use and misuse maps and map technology to tell stories, save lives, rig elections, and spy on you.

Learn how to read, utilize, and make maps in this book. Our investigation of maps will be influenced by a contextual awareness of how mapping is a fundamental tool for both scientific and creative inquiry, and how it reflects the interaction between society and technology. We will also look at how mapping may be used to address a range of societal problems, including political gerrymandering and land use planning. You will learn more about the technical foundations of mapping as a scientific technique, which will either support your current interests and activities or give your research or policymaking an applied focus.
