Description
Jennings takes listeners on a world tour of geogeeks from the London Map Fair to the bowels of the Library of Congress, from the prepubescent geniuses at the National Geographic Bee to the computer programmers at Google Earth. Each chapter delves into a different aspect of map culture. He also considers the ways in which cartography has shaped history, suggesting that the impulse to make and read maps is as relevant today as it has ever been.
