Title: 'The Power of Maps'

Using stunning maps and visualisations taken from his award-winning book Atlas of the Invisible, James  Cheshire will show how geography is at the heart of many of the world’s challenges – and offers a solution to them. You will see examples from pioneering thinkers and data visualisers from the 19th Century and hear how they are inspiring mapmakers today to make best use of the latest data and technology. The talk will also offer some behind the scenes insights into the concepts and techniques required to transform complex data into inspiring information.
