GxMagnifier (http://www.googlemappers.com/libraries/gxmagnifier/docs/default.htm ) is a free add-in control for Google Maps that creates a moveable, magnified window on top of your map (by Richard Kagerer who got the idea of trying to make a magnifier control after watching this concept video ).

"...recent approaches to scientific representation have begun to draw upon analogies with artistic representation... recent efforts to expand semantic taxonomies and to analyze the increasing field of images that fall outside classification as 'art' ... the project of rethinking representation is one of growing general importance ..." - ph-artandscience@lse.ac.uk (Beyond Mimesis and Nominalism: Representation in Art and Science, University of London, UK June 22-23, 2006 ) .

Dada Photomontage and net.art Sitemaps : http://faculty.washington.edu/dillon/rhethtml/dadamaps/dadamaps2b.html Even more than Cubist collage, Dada photomontage (Höch, Hausmann, Schwitters, Grosz/Heartfield) presents very suggestive images composed of signifying fragments ranging from small schematic arrangements to wildernesses of profusion. One sees several patterns (matrix, swirl, cascade) with their associated semantics. We then apply these categories and principles to website imagemaps to see what the imagemap is saying visually about the site and our experience of it. By George L. Dillon, dillon@u.washington.edu[published in PostModern Culture 10:2 (2000) ]
