Drawing together a range of creative and insightful thinkers, this
crucial volume explores the ever more complex and era defining
connections between technology and place. As a vital and
authoritative resource, this book deals with the changing fabric of
our digitally remastered lives. -- David Beer
As digital geographies have become both map and territory for the vast majority of the world's human inhabitants, geographers, aiming to make sense of this terrain, have found that digital technologies are likewise transforming the form, content, and methods of their work. Digital Geographies is the essential guidebook to this new world. -- Shannon Mattern
