   schema:description ""The book begins by asking a seemingly simple question: what does it mean to draw a line? It then gives a seemingly simple answer: to create a boundary, to define a space, and to shape an identity. The book builds on this foundation by exploring how, historically, maps have reached deep into social imaginaries to code the modern world. Going beyond the focus of traditional cartography, the book draws on examples of the use of maps from the sixteenth century to the present, including their role in projects of the national and colonial state, emergent capitalism and the planetary consciousness of the natural sciences."@en ;
   schema:description "It also considers the use of maps for military purposes, maps that have coded modern conceptions of health, disease and social character, and maps of the transparent human body and the transparent earth." "The final chapters of the book turn to the rapid pace of change in mapping technologies, the forms of visualization and representation that are now possible, and what the author refers to as 'the possibilities for post-representational cartographies'."--Jacket."@en ;
