Summary
Based on the popular and provocative book, Seeing Through Maps, this program provides a fascinating 30-minute exploration into the minds of twelve mapmakers and how their unique backgrounds, philosophies, values, and politics led each to select a particular mathematical formula to create their maps. Learn about the impact those world images have had on us, consciously and unconsciously. An invaluable resource for classes dealing with issues of cultural bias and ethnocentrism
