Who is mapospheres?
“Today it has become cool to get passionate about geography” (Slate.fr).Centuries ago, only a few people could make a map: they drew it by hand with great attention to details, and not many could read or use it. Cartography has known a golden age in the last 20 years with the development of location-based services, spatial data management and visualization software. Born along with mathematics and astronomy, in practice, cartography has always been a state-of-the-art science in communication and design.Mapospheres is a brand new company that aims to make representations of the World more captivating and even more diverse. Depicting our planet is a call for exploration. It is moreover a way to say that we won’t accept to spoil its aesthetic beauty. In a way, cartography is a form of activism and we want to be part of it! This World Trail races and Ultimate Frisbee‘s maps have been achieved after many weeks of collaborative labour with designer and data providers. We hope this is only the first maps of many more to come! You can discover, in the meantime, different artwork of our artistic “sphere” on mapospheres.eu and its collection of City maps , Love maps and Elevation maps.Let’s make maps and location more prevalent in our society !
