Madison interactive map

I found this interactive web map of Madison that parallels the sites we examined 2 weeks ago. Its purpose is finding alternative transportation options, something useful to us all I'm sure! It has toggling options for types of transportation that you are willing to use.

Aso, I ran across an article in the June, 2005 edition of the Annals of the Association of American Geographers written by Denis Cosgrove that talks about the use of maps in the L.A. Times during the years between 1942-1945. There was a cartographer by the name of Owens (if I remember correctly) who made a map every week in this period. The rhoetoric of the maps is discussed in the article, and it includes lots of nice color and b&w images.
