Summary

A cross-disciplinary survey of the history of cartography in Australia and Southern Africa which charts the trajectories of both colonial conquest and mapping technologies in both regions. Cartography is herein revealed to be the product of powerful social formations (fiscal, dynastic, military, commercial and imperial), informing not only where we see ourselves in the world but also how our cultural, historical and economic identities have developed over time.
