Description

Cartographic Grounds is visual compendium exploring the intersection of cartography and design through the provocative juxtaposition of maps and plans. The book offers a critique of data-driven mapping practices in the design disciplines. It argues for a return to cartographic representation, focusing on the depiction of the ground plane in landscape architecture and cartography. The book is framed by a series of critical essays and structured around ten representational techniques: soundings and spot elevations, isobaths and contours, hachures, shaded relief, land classification, figure-ground, stratigraphic column, cross section, line symbol, and conventional sign.
