VFF: Using maps to ask questions & make change

Like many visual forms, maps have a complicated history ¿ sometimes they're used as tools of domination and oppression, other times as ways to build a more just society. As a cartographer, trying to follow the side of the line which bends towards justice is not always easy. Counter-cartography advocates making maps that ask questions more than they answer them, in an attempt to unseat dominant spatial patterns and ways of thinking. This talk will present a few case studies of counter-mapping pro

Quick Pic: Track All The Paper!

Preservation Underground - Fri, 08/29/2014 - 13:00
Tracking repair papers that we have ordered.

Tracking repair papers that we have ordered.

Erin came up with a great idea to track the repair papers that we order. Each time we order a new paper she snips a small sample piece and attaches it to this grid that she created. There is room in the description area to list the vendor, the item number from their catalog, the price and when and how much we ordered it.

This has helped a great deal especially in re-ordering paper that we may not order on a regular basis. It’s also fun to see these all together to get an idea of the color ranges and weights of the repair tissues we have. It provides more information than a spreadsheet alone could provide. It’s a good thing!
