Abstract

It has been argued that we live in a map immersed world, but that the ubiquity of maps may actually lead to their devaluation and perhaps, even a form of invisibility. This paper describes a project designed to share ideas about the value of maps and mapping with the people of the county of Kent (UK) during International Map Year (IMY). The project involved a team of geographers at Canterbury Christ Church University writing a series of articles on maps and landscape to celebrate the year, but also engage people with mapping.
