Chances are you know someone who dislikes reading maps. Scales, grids, directions, legends, and all those details make it overwhelming to decipher information. Even mapmaker Denis Wood doesn’t use these things; in fact he challenges them. Maker of unconventional maps and author of several books denouncing the old rigid rules of cartography, Denis seeks instead to map things around him that people don’t usually think are mappable. Unapologetic and groundbreaking, we had the honor of speaking with Denis Wood to learn about his cartographic crusade, goals and aspirations for his work, and the effects mapmaking has had on his life.
