Rob Kitchin, "Atlas of Cyberspace"
English | ISBN: 0201745755 | 2002 | 288 pages | PDF | 28 MB
The fledgling field of cybergeography seeks to provide a visual "big picture" of the shape-shifting entity that is the Internet, giving people a sense of space that is difficult to grasp by navigation alone. Dodge (University College, London) and Kitchin (National U. of Ireland), who also wrote Mapping cyberspace , spent five years collating maps and research papers and interviewing the maps’ creators to produce this first, comprehensive guide to the visual representation of cyberspace media. A book that is beautiful as well as densely packed with information, it covers facets of the Net from the history of telecommunications to Web sites, e-mail, virtual worlds, and game space.
