This is a January 2021 intensive course. It will meet between January 2-16. See the exact meeting dates and times below. The internet, like many technologies, is often claimed to possess the power to collapse time and space. As we emphasize this communication network's capacity to erase distance, the physicality of the internet itself also tends to disappear from public view–or at least, from public concern. At the same time, the internet has enabled expanded access to tools for seeing and comprehending the physical world, through web mapping tools and satellite imagery resources.This class will introduce students to Javascript-based tools for creating web maps using Leaflet, D3, and Mapshaper. We will focus on visualizing data concerning physical infrastructures central to the internet. Discussion and reading will explore various ways that infrastructure occupies, transforms, and is transformed by its material environments.
