ANN: Coining and using the word "cartograph"

Matthew Edney's picture

Dear All:

I posted, last  night, the product of several nights' insomnia, a piece examining the shifting meanings of the word "cartograph," a repeatedly created back formation in (primarily) American usage. Its different usages are revealing of attitudes towards the ideal of cartography.

Please see: https://www.mappingasprocess.net/blog/2020/1/23/cartograph

Enjoy!

Matthew

Thanks for this!
