THE VISUAL DISPLAY OF INFORMATION 1 : MAPS

Maps have been with us as a means of navigation in the world for as long as we have moved on the face of the earth. The creation of maps requires a map maker, someone who can draw an accurate symbolic depiction of the position of real places, who can represent  the geography of the world in an artistic way, and more importantly produce a design that can be understood by someone who travels.

Here is a great BBC documentary on The Beauty of Maps

Maps are not the only things that have changed – so too the earth’s continents. Amazing animated map of our geological earth past, present & future.
