The Art of Map-Making

For centuries, cartographers have been using artist’s tools to visually interpret data and the natural environment. These maps and charts are scientific and functional, but also surprisingly artistic. Regardless of whether you lean more towards science or art, you’ll appreciate how the draftsman’s decisions — such as which colors or symbols to use, or how to represent the physical world on a flat surface — result in fascinating compositions.
