How mapping creates space, shapes cities and our view of the world.

What are the politics and aesthetics of mapping? An introduction how cartography shapes cities and landscapes, creates borders and determines the perception of our environment. How an evolving mix of high-resolution satellite imagery, algorithm-based mappings and the huge amount of data of digitized cities will enhance these effects? And in contrast, how can maps be designed, that question the “objectivity” and “correctness” of conventional cartography?
