- When Maps Lie,
  Andrew Wiseman, (via Seth Dixon, twitter)
AW teaches cartography and GIS at the George Washington U. in Washington, D.C.

Quand les cartes mentent
dans leur conception,
ou dans leur usage public et médiatique,
par manque de qualification ou par manipulation délibérée

Don’t trust a title
The source is important
Heat and density maps can confuse
What is the cartographer trying to show? What are they trying to hide?
The way the data is distributed is important
Choropleth maps can be tricky
Base data is important, too
But maps are still good

« None of this means that all maps are bad, or that we should always be suspicious of them, or that only experts should make maps.
Maps are inherently interesting and fun (so is geography!), but a little bit of thought and increased awareness of how they can manipulate or obscure is a good thing, too. Just like advertisements and political campaigns, we shouldn’t trust maps (or the data behind them) inherently, but they can still be powerful, interesting and amusing »
