THIS website is a collection of over 60 maps (and growing) cooperatively created by a guerrilla cartography community, a loose band of people who are passionate about geography or food, or both.
The atlas endeavours to map food in its myriad contexts and conditions. Dealing with subjects like global cropland distribution, its chapters focus on food production, food distribution, food security and cuisine.
Smaller chapters are devoted to conceptual food maps and a chapter for children to begin their exploration of the world of food.
The atlas fuses traditional cartography, poster art, infographics, and journalistic text blocking to create the map as a narrative device.
