Banis, David

"Modern cartography tells the hidden stories of Portland in these fascinating and colorful infographic maps. When mapmaking takes on nontraditional topics like patterns of graffiti or locations of strip clubs or even which neighborhoods favor which house colors, finding your way around the city takes on a whole new meaning. The work of two leading geographers, this atlas of over 150 maps explores such unexpected topics as city chickens, wild coyote encounters, the growth of man-made land, the (non)use of umbrellas, and queer culture. Each map starts with the gathering of at least one data set about a given topic, then translating that to a visual format that blends traditional cartographic skills with modern graphic design. Each map is different and and mesmerizing in its own right."
