This blog will cover the use of maps, mapping technology and location-based information in the media as well as its use by others who are using maps to convey a message on the web, TV, blogs, or other visual medium. Especially during this election year in the U.S., maps have been used to depict the winners and losers of the primaries, and for the most part of done a good job of introducing maps as a mass media element. I'll look at the technology they use and if they are using maps effectively, lying with maps, or just haven't a clue what they are doing. It'll be a fun ride; I hope you'll join the discussion.
