About

The New Maps Plus initiative grew out of the The New Mappings Collaboratory, an initiative of the College of Arts & Sciences at the University of Kentucky and the Department of Geography, which is committed to innovations in mapping.

Drawing on both applied and conceptual traditions in mapping practices and mapping thought, New Maps represents a stream of scholarship centered at the University of Kentucky and focused on public engagement, ‘big data’ and user-generated Internet content, as well as the affordances of place-based thinking, analysis, and representation. As a catalyst for mapping engagements on and off campus, New Maps works to promote creativity, excellence, and interaction around emergent mapping technologies.
