Atlas of the Invisible: Maps & Graphics That Will Change How You See the World
Discover the Hidden Patterns in Human Society with Data Visualization
Winner of the British Cartographic Society Award 2021, the John C Bartholomew Award for Thematic Mapping 2021, and the Stanfords Award for Printed Mapping 2021, Atlas of the Invisible is an extraordinary work of data visualization that challenges what an atlas can be. Award-winning geographer-designer team James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti use cutting-edge visualization techniques to transform vast amounts of data into rich maps and graphics, revealing insights about our past, present, and future.
Transforming Data into a Rich Visual Journey
"Maps, as we know, are the ultimate graphic organizers of information, but for too long, too many people have seen them as boring, static, old-fashioned even. James and Oliver's work blows that perception away - not only are the maps and graphics technically astounding, but they also tell stories, tease out patterns and make us think afresh about our world." - Michael Palin
Through an inquisitive approach, Cheshire and Uberti explore the world we live in by mapping and visualizing data to discover hidden patterns that go unseen in our everyday lives. They examine global levels of happiness and anxiety, track the networks of cell towers and undersea cables that connect us, explore the scars of geopolitical conflict, and highlight the effects of a warming planet on natural disasters and religious pilgrimage.
The Promise and Peril of Data
Atlas of the Invisible challenges the reader to consider the promises and perils of data in a newly visible world. The data collected and visualized in the book reveals both the beauty and the danger that come from understanding the patterns of our world. This stunning collection of maps and graphics provides a unique perspective on the world around us and invites readers to see the world in a new way.
