​​Maps have long played an integral role in society. They’ve been used to discover treasure and foreign lands, identify and locate constellations and stars, and simply to get to a relative’s house on time for Thanksgiving dinner. On this edition of Cityscape, we’re exploring the power of the map. Our guests are Becky Cooper, author of Mapping Manhattan: A Love (and Sometimes Hate) Story in Maps by 75 New Yorkers, and award-winning cartographer, graphic designer and information architect, Stephan Van Dam. Stephan is the President and Creative Director of New York City-based VanDam Inc.
