"Image évocatrice, objet convoité, enjeu de pouvoir, la carte dessine le monde. Outre les géographes-cartographes, de nombreux chercheurs, stimulés par sa puissance de représentation, l'utilisent afin de répondre à quelques-unes des interrogations de la société actuelle. La diversité des points de vue, des regards et des usages scientifiques, par conséquent la multiplicité des questionnements, se combine à la profondeur historique des références en apportant au lecteur curieux du monde des éléments de compréhension spatiale de processus, de circonstances, d'événements et de concepts propres à l'humanité. La carte, vivante et mouvante, est un reflet de l'imaginaire et la représentation d'un réel. Depuis l'Antiquité, les représentations de la Terre instaurent des mondes successifs, en jouant avec la géométrie, les distances et les formes, les plans et les volumes. Inscrites dans le temps, les cartes intègrent les temps de la terre et des sociétés. De nouvelles cartographies réinventent le monde du XXIe siècle."--Page 4 of cover.

Through official maps, this book looks at how government presentations of Paris and environs change over the course of the Third Republic (1889-1934). Governmental policies, such as the creation of a mandatory national uniform educational system that will eventually include geography, combined with technological advances in the printing industry, to alter the look, exposure, reception, and distribution of government maps. The government initially seemed to privilege an exclusively positive view of the capital city and limited its presentation of it to land inside the walled fortifications. However, as the Republic progressed and Paris grew, technology altered how Parisians used and understood their urban space. Rail and automobiles made moving about the city and environs easier while increased industrialization moved factories and their workers further out into the Seine Department. During this time, maps transitioned from reflecting the past to documenting the present. With the advent of French urbanism after World War I, official mapped views of greater Paris abandoned privileging past achievements and began to mirror actual residential and industrial development as it pushed further out from the city centre. Finally, the government needed to plan for the future of greater Paris and official maps begin to show how the government viewed the direction of its capital city.

In Creating the Mediterranean: Maps and the Islamic Imagination Tarek Kahlaoui treats the subject of the Islamic visual representations of the Mediterranean. It tracks the history of the Islamic visualization of the sea from when geography was created by the Islamic state's bureaucrats of the tenth century C.E. located mainly in the central Islamic lands, to the later men of the field, specifically the sea captains from the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries C.E. located in the western Islamic lands. A narrative has emerged from this investigation in which the metamorphosis of the identity of the author or mapmaker seemed to be changing with the rest of the elements that constitute the identity of a map: its reader or viewer, its style and structure, and its textual content.

  • Introduction : Le monde vu d'Asie -- Une histoire cartographique -- L'Himalaya, au centre du monde -- De la cosmographie à la cartographie du sacré -- De la cour palatine aux marges barbares -- Appropriation du territoire et symbolique du pouvoir -- L'invention d'un continent -- Les "grandes découvertes" des moines, marins et aventuriers asiatiques Le décentrement du monde -- Jésuites européens, savoirs autochtones et hybridations cartographiques -- Occidentalismes ? -- Les Européens en Asie, l'Europe vue d'Asie -- Les cartes asiatiques en Europe -- Circulations, représentations et appropriations.
"Ce beau livre relate une autre histoire du monde centrée sur l'Asie à travers des chefs-d'oeuvre cartographiques et iconographiques, célèbres ou méconnus, qui témoignent des échanges féconds entre les différentes régions asiatiques, ainsi qu'entre l'Asie et le reste du monde du XVe au XXe siècle. Après avoir présenté les univers cosmographiques hindou, jaïn, bouddhiste et taoïste qui constituent la matrice des cartographies religieuses, les auteurs nous invitent à suivre certains explorateurs comme l'amiral Zheng He, des moines tel Xuanzang et ses fameuses Pérégrinations cers l'Ouest, et les commerçants partis sur les routes des "grandes découvertes" asiatiques. Les nouveaux pouvoirs royaux et impériaux mettent en scène leur autorité sur le territoire grâce à la cartographie, à travers la représentation des conquêtes, des frontières, des grands travaux et des capitales. Longtemps, les mappae mundi chinoises, coréennes et indiennes confondent le monde avec l'Asie et relèguent l'Europe et l'Afrique dans les marges des cartes. À partir de la fin du XVIe siècle, la coopération entre les jésuites européens et les savants chinois induit un décentrement, qui ouvre des perspectives géographiques aux élites autochtones, tout en situant l'Asie au coeur du monde. Au me siècle, la présence coloniale européenne apparaît sur les cartes qui traduisent d'autres formes d'hybridation des savoirs. Les Occidentaux se sont alors réapproprié ces savoirs cartographiques asiatiques et une grande partie de ces oeuvres ont été déplacées, notamment dans certaines collections françaises."--Page 4 of cover.

"La revue transdisciplinaire de l'école doctorale 354, Les Chantiers de la Création, propose, dans un numéro exceptionnel en version papier, d'examiner les relations entre mondes et cartes. D'un point de vue historique, la carte a souvent été l'instrument d'une emprise impériale ou colonisatrice, suscitant rapports de force et formes de résistance. De nos Jours, les évolutions technologiques ont transformé notre rapport à la cartographie, questionnant aussi bien l'interface de la carte que notre propre perception du monde. Ces multiples problématiques trouvent des échos féconds dans les champs artistiques et littéraires, où la carte peut devenir un intermédiaire entre différents mondes : intérieur et extérieur, réel et fantasmé, présent et passé... Huit jeunes chercheurs ont réfléchi à ces problématiques lors de la dixième journée d'étude des Chantiers de la Création."--Page 4 of cover.

In the twenty-first century we speak of a geospatial revolution, but over one hundred years ago another mapping revolution was in motion. Women's lives were in motion: they were playing a greater role in public on a variety of fronts. As women became more mobile (physically, socially, politically), they used and created geographic knowledge and maps. The maps created by American women were in motion too: created, shared, distributed as they worked to transform their landscapes. Long overlooked, this women's work represents maps and mapping that today we would term community or participatory mapping, critical cartography and public geography. These historic examples of women-generated mapping represent the adoption of cartography and geography as part of women's work. While cartography and map use are not new, the adoption and application of this technology and form of communication in women's work and in multiple examples in the context of their social work, is unprecedented. This study explores the implications of women's use of this technology in creating and presenting information and knowledge and wielding it to their own ends. This pioneering and original book will be essential reading for those working in Geography, Gender Studies, Women's Studies, Politics and History.

Smart phones, car navigation systems and now driverless cars are based on coordinates and coordinate systems. This book is about why coordinate systems work, and why they sometimes don't work. The previous editions are based on the North American Datum(NAD 83), the horizontal control datum for the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Central America, and the North American Vertical Datum(NAVD 88). By tracking the dynamic nature of the Earth, NGS will provide a new National Spatial Reference System that is semi-dynamic. It will replace NAVD 88 with a GNSS/geoid datum and replace NAD 83 with a geocentric GNSS-based datum. These changes will be explained in the new edition.
