Using Mental Map Principles to Interpret American Indian Cartography
Mitchell, Martin D.
Journal of Geography, v113 n1 p3-9 2014
The understanding of maps drawn or significantly influenced by American Indians fosters critical thinking, cultural diversity, and awareness of a much-neglected topic in cartography. Line styles, scale depiction, and the sizing of individual entities are discussed in the context of applying principles from mental maps to American Indian maps and early European maps of North America possessing significant American Indian input.
