Mapping: From Pittsburgh to Middle-Earth

Mapping: From Pittsburgh to Middle-Earth

Maps change how we see the places where we live. For the past seven years, local cartographer Stentor Danielson has been drawing maps of Pittsburgh and other real cities in a style drawn from fantasy maps like Tolkien’s famous map of Middle-earth.

During this virtual storytelling experience Danielson talks about what maps do and don’t show, and how they can help us to reimagine our world.
