Seven Maps of the World

Seven Maps of the World

Seven new maps of the world is the title of a contribution that I have prepared with Danny Dorling for this year’s Oxfordshire Science Festival. It is a collection of seven maps that aim to give an insight into the complex geography in a globalised world where humankind and its environment is inevitably intertwined and interconnected. The maps were originally created for the book Geography written by Carl Lee and Danny Dorling. It is a collection of short stories that explain the role of geography in understanding how we got to where we are now and where we are going.
Here are all seven maps, telling a story of Geography in the 21st century:
