    Map Makers

    Map Makers are the people of the world who express knowledge and information, interpretation and context, art and science.

    They are Visualizers. Generative Coders. Geographic Painters.
    Spatial Choreographers. Illustrators and Model Builders. Database Processors. Pattern Makers.

    They think of boxes outside the box. They give us perspectives and interactive choices.
    If the world is about dimensional exchanges of matter and energy, Map Makers give us space and time, and the essential patterns of meaning.

    The best map makers create
    richly simple
    highly accurate
    universally understood
    characterizations of their subject.

    Their maps interact with
    the needs of the user
    the value of the information
    the relationships among the variables
    the various perspectives and layers
    to evoke meaning inherent in the design.

    Their maps communicate
    spectra of validity and goodness
    what is
    at the surface
    systemic beneath the surface

    But it is not the maps that are most important.
    It is the map makers.
    The aggregators
    The connectors
    The recorders
    The visualizers
    The translators
    of “what is”
    into a language
    we can understand
    we can act on

    The truly great map makers
    are the bold explorers
    of new worlds.

    Make a map with us.
