Conceptual Framework

ideas that motivate my work

 

 

Maps = Power

Waldseemüller map 1507

Knowledge Politics

Political Power

"...knowledge politics to be shaped by deeply institutionalized tendencies in planning and policy making to grant greater weight to knowledge expressed as quantitative data or represented in cartographic forms." 

 

Data Driven Decision Making

(Elwood & Leszczynski, 2012: 545)

GIS and spatial media

(Ricker, 2017)

Maps --> Media

Applied

Quantitative

Theory

Spatial Media

Elwood & Leszczynski (2012) New spatial media, new knowledge politics. Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers (38): 544-559.

"Mediums or channels that extend our ability to interact with and create geographic information online" p 544

"From expert to everyday"

 

(Elwood & Leszczynski, 2012)

"moment of translation

transforming experiential, testimonial and qualitative forms of knowledge into quantitative aggregated or abstracted forms" (Elwood & Leszczynski , 2012: 548)
