Are maps just pictures, or analytical tools? Are they graphics or science? Analysis of patterns in data is at the core of science, and analysis of spatial patterns is at the core of geographical research. Never have spatial data been more available and never have we been better equipped to use them. Using examples from the Antarctic and Greenland ice sheets and from Syria to the Congo, I’ll make a case for the map as a valuable scientific tool, a key asset in disaster management and a powerful way to tell important stories.
