Cartography is the study and practice of making maps. Combining science, aesthetics, and technique, cartography builds on the premise that reality can be modeled in ways that communicate spatial information effectively. Cartography has been an integral part of human history for over 8000 years. From cave paintings to ancient maps of the Old World, right through to the Age of Exploration and on into the 21st century, maps continue to play an important role in our daily lives and in global development and advancement.
These huge wall mural atlas maps by designers Rayworld are intended to be pieces of art in their own right. The aim is to work on the world map and make it more detailed so you’ll want to take a second look.
Rayworld say: “it is the best way of enjoying and learning at the same time”.
