You Are Here Virtual Tour
We all use maps in our everyday lives--to navigate public transportation, find places to eat, and visualize big data like weather patterns or political opinions. But have you ever considered the deeper stories maps tell us? Discovery how maps are powerful tools to share unique points of view and imagine a better future. This is a 45-minute live Zoom discussion.
