The Image of Maps • Maps of the Imagination (A One Day Conference • 13 May 2006) Historically, the creation of maps has been at the intersection of a broad spectrum of issues that include the relationship between art and science, the philosophy of space, cultural and political geographies, among many others. In this way, maps are cultural products which express the beliefs of those who created them, and as such are an index to ideas that are not expressed in other extant texts. Second, this symposium aims to address the concept of mapping as a means of creating structures that are not limited to the organization of space, but which rather use the metaphor of mapping as a means to organize the world. The process of creating mental maps is one example of this, and it can also be argued that, historically, people have used the metaphor of mapping as a means of organizing encyclopaedic knowledge, aiding memory, meditation, and other forms of invention.: http://users.ox.ac.uk/~ball2144/
