Mapping Cyberspace

Synopsis

What does cyberspace look like? Can people make places in virtual spaces?

Space is central to our lives. Because of this, much attention is directed at understanding and explaining the geographic world. Mapping Cyberspace is a groundbreaking book, which extends this analysis to provide a geographic exploration and critical reading of cyberspace and information and communication technologies.

Drawing together the findings and theories of researchers from geography, cartography, sociology, cultural studies, computer-mediated-communications, information visualization, literary theory and cognitive psychology this volume charts the spatial form of virtual spaces. Mapping Cyberspace will be a valuable addition to the growing body of literature on cyberspace and what it means in the future.
