From Counter-Mapping to Artist’s Mapping to Community Mapping

In groups, and
without using your
phones or iPads,
try to draw a map
of Exeter, including
the university
campus, from

Early maps were often written on with accounts of tours, histories,
or itineraries of pilgrimages, but as the history of the map goes on
such writing and their pictorial figurations are eliminated, giving way
to purely spatial description.
(Michel de Certeau, 1984: 121)
J. H. Andrews desrcibes, on the
Dartmouth Maps of 1598, for
example, there is the description:
‘In this bog there is every whott
[hot?] summer strange fighting of
battles sometimes at foot
sometimes wt horse, sometimes
castles seen on a sudden,
sometimes great store of cows
driving & fighting for them.’
(qtd in Andrews 1997: 202)

‘The World According to The Surrealists’, 1929


The Situationist’s Map, 1957


Le Corbusier’s Urban Planning

Combe Martin, Devon

The Parish Maps Project, Common Ground,1987


‘It begins with, and is sustained by,
inclusive gestures and encouraging
questions. What is important to
you about this place, what does it
mean to you? What makes it
different from other places? What
do you value here? What do we
know, what do we want to know?
How can we share our
understandings? What could we
change for the better? Turning each
other into experts in this way helps
to liberate all kinds of quiet
knowledge, as well as passion,
about the place. Making a Parish
Map can inform, inspire, embolden.’
