The power of maps and geographical data visualisations for telling stories about our world
Geography has never been more important in helping us to understand our rapidly changing world.
Geographers bring a critical perspective and approach to interpreting and presenting data. They help make new connections between different types of data by interweaving spatial methods with knowledge about our world, and finding innovative and understandable ways to present it.
In our Geovisualisation series, we look at the power of maps and geographical data visualisations for telling stories about our world. We explore the ways in which connecting data on people, places and environments underpins good decision-making and improves communication and understanding. In the interviews with the creators that accompany each image, we showcase the skills, data, techniques and tools used to tell these stories, and the insight they can bring.
