Data Visualization catalogue
Our latest catalogue is a collection of fascinating maps, charts and diagrams that visualise collected data from the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Data compiled through improved techniques during the nineteenth century had begun to inform debate in politics, economics, and the new social science. Cartography played a significant part in making this new information comprehensible. Plotting cultural and social data on a map not only allowed spatial analysis of that data, but also gave the idea authority, and “thematic”, or “persuasive” cartography was born.
