LONDON–Lately I’ve been considering subtle ways of communicating qualitative information in the maps that I’m making. For each group of participants I have (representing a different type of relationship), I’d like to have a separate map background that represents some aspect of the tone, vibe, or feeling of the relationship being portrayed.
Below are an assortment of some of the maps I’ve made to better investigate various visual possibilities. They all represent the same central piece of data: a display of where I’ve traveled in London since moving here five months ago. In one of my earlier posts, I included a map of where I had traveled for a month; it’s fun seeing how it has changed since arriving in September.
