Mapping Spacetime: Time Travel via Timeless Maps

Friday, March 11
5:00PM - 6:00PM

Westin Austin Downtown
Paramount 2-3
310 E 5th ST

Maps are a pretty persistent part of how we plot history, how we cartographically comprehend our present, and how might process a topographical trajectory of our future. They allow us to tell trends with data on a geospatial-sensitive canvas, making time travel possible, and geo-locally relevant. This talk will focus on how time-sensitive maps can give us insights into our past and our future; how open source tools like Torque.JS and the integration of satellite time-series imagery into contemporary web maps can redefine how we relate to time, showcasing maps as an ideal format for building beautiful visualizations that compliment a narrative arc of spacetime proportions.
