A feature about my work is featured in today’s edition of the German national daily newspaper Frankfurter Rundschau. The map of the remotest areas on the planet made it onto the front page (pictured above), and the article features a number of graphics from my PhD research as well as some unpublished works. The feature can be found in today’s print edition of the paper, and can also be accessed via their digital edition on the iPad in the Frankfurter Rundschau app (some knowledge of German may help to read the article, but the maps do also speak for themselves – so go and see it yourself).
If you found your way here via the print version or the iPad article, then you may find the following resources mentioned in the text useful (beyond the further content that you find on this website of course):
- Worldmapper: Project within which I have undertaken my research (funded by the Leverhulme Trust)
- World Population Atlas: Collection of gridded population cartograms (extension of the Worldmapper map collection)
- My book publication about the research: Rediscovering the World: Map Transformations of Human and Physical Space (Springer); doi: 10.1007/978-3-642-34848-8; available as a Springer book, also available at Amazon and Apple iBooks
My research was awarded the 2012 German Study Award (Deutscher Studienpreis)
by the Körber Stiftung who made a short slideshow about my work:
