Maps and Mapping in the Eyes of Artists and Cartographers–Experiences from the International Symposium on Cartography and Art
Contemporary methods for depicting the earth and its cultural and natural attributes use graphic and non-graphic formats, maps and map-related artefacts, for visualising geography and for building virtual landscapes and environments. The discipline area of cartography, traditionally, has applied art (design), science and technology to map-making to design and realise these products. Prior to the mid 1950s cartographic artefacts were built under the theoretical and practical ‘umbrella’ of this partnership of art, science and technology. However, since then it is argued, the theory and methodology associated with visualising geography has focused on science and technology, and away from art.
