Canadian Geographic says
At a time when virtually every square metre of land on Earth has been accurately mapped, is there any need for map makers in 2016? Cartographer Chris Brackley certainly thinks there is. In this talk, Chris will explain how the cartographer's role has shifted from creating maps that help people get from A to B, to creating maps that help people understand the complexity and the beauty of the world that exists between A and B.

Chris Brackley is the cartographer for the Royal Canadian Geographical Society and Canadian Geographic Magazine, as well as the owner of As the Crow Flies cARTography

This event is presented in partnership with the Royal Canadian Geographical Society in conjunction with The Art of Cartography exhibit in the library's TD Gallery.
