Scaling the Light Fantastic: Geographies of Scale and the Web.
Aitken, Stuart C.
Journal of Geography, v98 n3 p118-27 May-Jun 1999
Highlights the social construction of scale on the Internet and how some scale relationships are represented in web-based visual images. Maintains that web sites contain story lines that can act as guides through these scale representations. Shows the need for a "visual grammar" that will enable people to understand the logic behind the Internet. (CMK)
