Mapping environmental issues in the city. In: Mapping Environmental Issues in the City: Arts and Cartography Cross Perspectives. Ed. S. Caquard et al. Springer-Verlag Berlin. Sébastien Caquard, Laurene Vaughan and William Cartwright. 2011

From the Abstract:
"Expectations and conventions around “mapping” differ tremendously across different domains of knowledge and practice. While in cartography, mapping refers to specific techniques and concepts for representing information related to places, in the arts and humanities this terms is used more broadly and includes a diversity of practices and expectations. More than just data, artists and other creative practitioners express understandings, fears, hopes, emotions and perceptions about places and people through mapping, and these dimensions are essential for fully understanding our relation to places."
