An Informative and Entertaining Online Exploration of Maps

Map by Nicolas de Fer (public domain)

Scientist/philosopher Alfred Korzybski observed: “A map is not the territory it represents, but, if correct, it has a similar structure to the territory, which accounts for its usefulness.”

Korzybski’s comment is insightful because simplified representations of the world can (intentionally or naively) offer misleading narratives about reality.

Bending Lines: Maps and Data from Distortion to Deception is a wonderful online exhibition of maps, their construction and interpretation – provided by the Leventhal Map & Education Center.
