New book on Arts & Cartography (and environmental issues)

The book “Mapping Environmental Issues in the City: Arts & Cartography Cross-Perspectives” has now been published by Springer. This book compiles the different contributions from the workshop that we (the commission on Art & Cartography) organized in Montreal in September 2010. We would like to thank all the persons who have contributed to make this project happen.

This book complements the growing body of literature exploring the relationships between arts and cartography . It is distinct from the previous ones by its main focus: The multiple ways of representing a database. In the context of the exponential increase of the volume of geospatial data available, addressing this issue becomes critical and has not yet received much attention. Furthermore, the content of the database – environmental issues in the city – gives a strong social and political texture to the project.
