Are Maps TALK Instead of Pictures? * digital - free * Chapter Eight
Are Maps TALK Instead of Pictures? is the final chapter of ODT's ground-breaking book on teaching about many ways to see the world. This free download represents our cutting-edge thinking about the hidden messages maps send. We challenge conventional wisdom that says (as we once believed) that maps are pictures.
But what if that dearly held notion is false?
This provocative new chapter asserts:
1. Most maps are commissioned by people in power who want to maintain their positions of power.
2. Maps show the world the way those in control of the mapmaking process want the world to be.
Learn about how the world would look if maps were really “talk” instead of “pictures”!
