Product description

Amazon Review

We don't normally think of maps as contentious, but the Atlas of Cyberspace shows us otherwise. Information cartographers Martin Dodge and Rob Kitchin show off a wide range of possibilities of representing the vast realms of data existing on and supporting the Internet. Since so many of these models were created to display never-before-charted territories, the book is largely devoted to analysing their accuracy, ease of development and use, potential for abuse, and other qualities.

Chapters cover infrastructural elements, the Web, communities and creative renderings of cyberspace and contain both compelling images and thought-provoking texts. Though it ends up feeling more like a catalogue of visual display methods than a reference book detailing virtual geography, its examples still inform and startle the viewer with unexpected transformations of data into understanding and, occasionally, art. --Rob Lightner

Review

"The Atlas of Cyberspace explores a remarkable universe of visual representations of the Internet's diversity, structure and content." --Vint Cerf, Chairman, ICANN
