Maps are an approximation
»   On Exactitude in Science . . . In that Empire, the Art of Cartography attained
    such Perfection that the map of a single Province occupied the entirety of a
    City, and the map of the Empire, the entirety of a Province. In time, those
    Unconscionable Maps no longer satisfied, and the Cartographers Guilds
    struck a Map of the Empire whose size was that of the Empire, and which
    coincided point for point with it. The following Generations, who were not so
    fond of the Study of Cartography as their Forebears had been, saw that that
    vast Map was Useless, and not without some Pitilessness was it, that they
    delivered it up to the Inclemencies of Sun and Winters. In the Deserts of the
    West, still today, there are Tattered Ruins of that Map, inhabited by Animals
    and Beggars; in all the Land there is no other Relic of the Disciplines of
    Geography.

»   Suarez Miranda,Viajes de varones prudentes, Libro IV,Cap. XLV, Lerida,
    1658

» Convey time and space.
» Narrate.
» Examples.
Maps give a sense of place
» while the internet eliminates time and
  space…
Maps give a sense of place
» Location-Based Services, GPS, A-GPS add a
  layer of place onto the internet.
WHAT DO MAPS DO?
» Approximate.
» Convey time and space.
» Narrate.
» Examples.
Maps tell stories in new ways
» John Snow
  mapped an
  Cholera outbreak
  in 1854.
» His technique
  revolutionized
  epidemiology.
But some don’t tell very much
» Map of the Internet
» What is
  communicated?
Some change the way we see




» NASA map of the earth at night in 2002.
» What does light become a proxy for?
WHAT DO MAPS DO?
» Approximate.
» Convey time and space.
» Narrate.
» Examples.
Google Maps
» Create maps
  using Google’s
  mapping engine.
» Collaborate, post
  on the web,
  design icons.
Trippermap + GMiF
» Combine flickr +
  google maps.
» Geotagging
  images connect
  photos to a
  location.
» Google Maps in
  Flickr.
GIS
» Geographic Information Systems --
  query-based systems using geographic
  information.




           http://www.youcity.com
2D Barcode + QR Code
» 2D-bar (Quick Response Code) which
  can be decoded with camera phones.
» Readers: Jaxo, Kaywa
» Semapedia
Loopt
» Track your friends
  with location-
  based social
  networking.
» Ambient
  awareness.
Socialight
» Tag the city with
  “stickie” notes.
» Augmented
  reality.
Dodgeball.com
» SMS-based mobile social networking.
» Meet friends and friends of friends.
Reality Mining
» low entropy individual
Reality Mining
» high entropy individual
Maps can describe people
» Reality Mining -
  mapping
  application
» Where we go
  defines who we
  are…
» Where are you at
  3.00 pm everyday?
Blogs
» Blogs provide a useful medium for
  creating narrative of maps over
