Nothing beats a good mental map. Nothing.
It has been great participating in the Data Discotech’s put on by the Detroit Community Technology Project (DCTP). In the last event held at the Boggs School, we shared the hand map example to help students understand the geography of their city.
Hand maps are rarely accurate, but help build a conceptual understand of the world around us. The Boggs students taught us as much about the geography of Detroit as we hoped to teach them about spoke streets.
