This e-book is meant for functions of on-line electronic mapping, known as mashups (or composite application), and to research the mapping practices in on-line socio-technical controversies. The speculation recommend is that the facility to create an internet map accompanies the formation of on-line viewers and offers help for a place in a debate at the Web.
The first half offers a research of the map:
- a mix of map and statistical reason
- crosses among map theories and CIS theories
- fresh advancements in scanning the map, from Geographic details structures (GIS) to net map.
The moment half relies on a corpus of twenty "mashup" maps, and gives a techno-semiotic research highlighting the "thickness of the mediation" they're in a strategy of communique on the internet. Map as a tool to "make do" is therefore changed via those levels of construction, starting from electronic information of their viewing, ahead of describing the development of the map as a device for visible proof in public debates, and finishing with an research of the delegation motion opposed to web users.
The 3rd part offers an research of those mapping practices within the case examine of the talk over nuclear radiation following the twist of fate on the Fukushima plant on March eleven, 2011. Techno-semiotic procedure utilized to this corpus of radiation map is supplemented by way of an research of net graphs, derived from "digital tools" and graph idea, accompanying the research of the former steps maps (creating Geiger facts or retrieving documents online), but in addition their flow, as soon as maps are made.

Finally, while Robinson laid the groundwork of his theoretical work in the field of military research, Bertin’s source and audience were primarily academics. In this way, he joined in the tendency of his time to merge statistics with humanities and social sciences [PAL 00]. 3. The map communication model Although Robinson started his work at the beginning of the 1950s, it is not before the end of the 1960s that a systematic communication approach to maps was adopted as part of the MCM.
On July 2, 2012, the Website reported 2,615 mapping mashups out of the 6,695 available3. Among these mapping applications, 2,385 used the Google Maps API4, only 175 used Bing Maps by Microsoft, and 135 mashups used Yahoo Maps. How can such an overwhelming success be explained? xx]. Moreover, using this service was free and unlimited to start with5. And finally, a dynamic community of developers has contributed to the large number of applications using Google Maps today [RIE 08]. 0 is often portrayed as the transition point from a static to a user-generated content-based Web, it is also characterized by the development of “platforms” in addition to the Web of hyperlinks.
