9780128035092: Reflexive Cartography: A New Perspective in Mapping (Modern Cartography Series)

Reflexive Cartography addresses the adaptation of cartography, including its digital forms (GIS, WebGIS, PPGIS), to the changing needs of society, and outlines the experimental context aimed at mapping a topological space. Using rigorous scientific analysis based on statement consistency, relevance of the proposals, and model accessibility, it charts the transition from topographical maps created by state agencies to open mapping produced by citizens. Adopting semiotic theory to uncover the complex communicative mechanisms of maps and to investigate their ability to produce their own messages and new perspectives, Reflexive Cartography outlines a shift in our way of conceptualizing maps: from a plastic metaphor of reality, as they are generally considered, to solid tools that play the role of agents, assisting citizens as they think and plan their own living place and make sense of the current world. * Applies a range of technologies to theoretical perspectives on mapping to innovatively map the world's geographic diversity* Features a multi-disciplinary perspective that weaves together geography, the geosciences, and the social sciences through territorial representation* Authored and edited by two of the world's foremost cartographic experts who combine more than 60 years of experience in research and in the classroom* Presents more than 60 figures to underscore key concepts

About the Author:

Emanuela Casti, PhD is Professor and Chair of Geography at the University of Bergamo in Italy as well as Chief of its Diathesis Cartographic Lab, sperimental structure integrated within the international network EIDOLON. Prof. Casti has been studying the semiotics of maps for nearly 30 years, culminating in the formalization of a structured semiotic theory which has been successfully applied both to real case-histories, in Europe and in Africa, and in the context of the history of cartography. Within the Diathesis Cartographic Lab, she has developed a research methodology (SIGAP Strategy) centered on the symbiosis territory/cartography. She has authored two books and more than 50 journal articles on cartography and related topics. She is a member of the Board of Directors of the Italian Geographic Society (SGI). She is also member of several national associations - such as the Association of Italian Geographers (AGeI), the Italian Association of Cartography (AIC)-, as well as international ones, namely the International Geographic Union (UGI) and the International Cartographic Association (ICA).
