Rethinking the Map

Friend/mentor/former thesis advisor/boss Paul F. Starrs, Ph.D. recently posted a link to what can only be described as one of the finest examples of deconstructionist geography I have seen. Maps have traditionally been a means to present a layout of the land. Instead, Radical Cartography seeks to mashup, redefine, and rethink how data, space, and place are represented graphically. At times it becomes a trip into the realm of philosophy, semiotics, and art theory. Radical Cartography seeks to, as noted on the webpage manifesto, push the boundaries of "map."

And if you are as map-mad as me, I highly suggest the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection:
