Though its history dates back millennia, cartography has exploded in the digital age. The advent of the personal computer, and more recently the smart phone, has driven the creation of maps at a frenzied pace. From the struggle between open source and proprietary systems to the constant balance between data and artistry, Urban Cartography selectively examines the last 20 years of map making and explores the diverse roles that maps now play in our daily lives.

VENUE is a multimedia documentation of the 16-month U.S. tour embarked upon by two of the Internet’s most acclaimed bloggers, Geoff Manaugh (BLDGBLOG) and Nicola Twilley (Edible Geography). Inspired by 19th century survey expeditions, VENUE documents “often overlooked yet fascinating sites through the eyes of the innovators, trendsetters, entrepreneurs, and designers at the forefront of ideas today,” thus creating a cross-section of the country for the 21st century.
