Expressive Cartography with Code
During the ascent and proliferation of web mapping over the last decade or so, many professional cartographers worried that easy, automated mapping was leading to a decline in good cartographic design—that amateur mappers could too easily produce bad maps, and that code-based mapping lacked the essential human touch of good design. But code has caught up! A tour of modern, code-driven cartography shows that code isn’t the death of cartographic design, but rather can be wielded as a powerful design tool, and enables expressive cartography matching or exceeding the craft as we knew it.
