Prepare yourself for maps as you have never seen them. The Map Library’s popular Geo-Abstract display is now re-exhibiting in the Davis and Porter libraries for the spring term.
"At first glance, you may think you’re looking at a Picasso or Monet, but under study you’ll see the beauty of the Earth as never before,” explains Eva Dodsworth, Geospatial Data Services Librarian.
Each location features 10 maps created using true representations that reveal the innate "flair of abstract artistry" in reflecting the land, water, ground elevation, and population profile census information.
All of the maps show accurate graphical and photographic representations of the earth and its people and were created by Map Library staff using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) technology.
Geo-Abstract was initially exhibited in collaboration with RENDER at the Modern Languages Gallery in September.
