Maps have incredible transformative powers, particularly in terms of spatial analysis, visualisation and in decision-making. As maps have become ever-more ubiquitous in both our professional and private lives, have the new tools and approaches changed the way we respond to and engage with spatial data? Is our relationship with mapping different now? To what extent is this a reflection of technology or new forms of representation and graphic communication? Are we seeing the evolution of new paradigms for the spatial and projective disciplines that realise a change for mapping within transdisciplinary modes of practice? These are questions that inform his personal research.
