Atlas of Transformation
"Atlas of Transformation is a book with almost 900 pages. It is a sort of global guidebook of transformation processes. With structured entries, its goal is to create a tool for the intellectual grasping of the processes of social and political change in countries that call themselves "countries of transformation" or are described by this term. The Atlas of Transformation was first published in Czech and it contains more than 200 "entries" and key terms of transformation. Several dozen authors (more than 100) from the whole world contributed to this book and also some influential period texts were republished here."

Chris Heathcote: anti-mega: pirates and scalpels
"These are the maps I create daily. They’re pirate maps – simple maps that have just the information I need to get somewhere. I’ve learnt that what’s most important for me are roads and roadnames. Often I’ll be using these with google maps on my phone – matching the flashing blue dot and roads with the map. Actually – I’ve very forgetful, and I’ll leave them in the hotel. Luckily, as I’ve said before, the learning is in the making."

[this is aaronland] The hills are alive with the sound of shadows
"It's (always been) clear that a four-page pocketMMap doesn't work but it's equally clear that any collection of personal or shared history will eventually grow beyond the upper limits of a single sheet of paper. So what to do? One idea I'd like to play around with is clustering the list of points by some measure of proximity — say by distance or mapping lat/long to a corresponding WOE neighbourhood ID — and then generating a smaller, shorter pocketMMap for each. That probably makes for more individual sheets to fold but also defers doing so until it's actually necessary and in the end, better maps to the way that we hold the overlapping facets and stories of a place in our mind."
