This is the second panel in a three-part series investigating how the map can be understood as a metaphor, both as material artifact and cultural object as well as an artistic tool. Our second panel focuses on professionals and technologists working with maps, responding to the inclusion, omission, or loss of information, and projecting past data into new presentations.

The series is organized by the Center for Book Arts and made possible through a grant by the New York Chapter of the American Printing History Association.
