Many of your have proposed atlas projects examining Latourian networks of nature-culture, Anthropocenic landscapes, porous geographies and other hybrid spatial forms. I asked my friend and colleague Bobby Pietrusko — who teaches at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, and whose work we’ll be exploring during our “Deep Mapping” week in November — if he could recommend the work of a few designers engaged with hybrid landscapes. Here’s what he recommended:
NACIS, the North American Cartographic Information Society, has an annual meeting where map nerds talk shop and share projects.
The description of presentations from past meetings are all here (select a block of time and the detailed description will show), and they post video of the talks. Some of the presentations are very technical (I developed this command line tool to help make some changes to a geojson file and let me tell you how you can use it), some about process (we are developing maps for outdoor displays at the National Park Service, here are some things we needed to consider), and some about projects that were as much art projects as anything else.
