Joost Grootens (PhDArts) – Maps, Mapping, and Mapmaking in the Digital Age

The digitization of tools to create, record, edit, produce and distribute visual information empowered new players to enter the field of mapmaking, who, with no prior knowledge, started mapping different subjects, in novel ways, occasionally resulting in new kinds of maps. The PhD-research ‘Blind Maps and Blue Dots’ studies contemporary mapmaking practices of technology companies and amateurs to investigate the blurring of the producer-user divide in the production of visual information.
