"How do Maps Work?" A Podcast & Map Gallery for Teachers

Welcome to a discussion on How Maps Work, a podcast and gallery published by the World History Center at the University of Pittsburgh in Spring 2021 and edited by Alexandra Straub. The podcast is a conversation between Ruth Mostern and Kathy Hart and is facilitated by Molly Warsh.

The podcast and map gallery are intended to prompt listeners to think broadly about the kinds of documents that can be thought of as maps, and to help teachers think about how to use many kinds of maps critically in their classrooms. People all around the world create visual representations of spatial relationships and their worlds in ways that matter to them. This guide explores the diversity of these representations and the ways that spatial information travels between people, often in the context of imperialism and colonialism. This guide also includes a list of additional reading and browsing materials.

These Colorful Propaganda Maps Fueled 20th-Century Wars

Maps made to persuade the public during times of conflict can be beautiful, terrifying, funny, and informative.

Maps often have hidden agendas, conveyed through subtle choices made by the cartographer. That is not the case for these maps.

The maps—which are currently in an exhibition called “War Map” at the Map House in London—have very clear messages. They’re war propaganda, meant to convince the public of an enemy’s evil tendencies, or that a conflict is winnable and worth the sacrifice. The exhibit and an accompanying book are filled with colorful maps that reveal details about the politics, culture, and art of countries involved in conflicts in the first half of the 20th century.

The map above is a great example. Made in 1900, it portrays Russia as an octopus with tentacles reaching out in all directions, strangling Poland, Finland, and China, and reaching toward Turkey, Afghanistan, and Persia. The map’s creator, British cartographer Frederick Rose, was, in his time, perhaps the most influential maker of what are known as anthropomorphic maps. Though the octopus is the main character of this map, most European countries are depicted as various people, which is where the style gets its name.

Utah Drawn: An Exhibition of Rare Maps

The six maps reproduced below are part of Utah Drawn: An Exhibition of Rare Maps displayed in the Utah Capitol Building in 2017.

Maps serve many purposes. They represent physical geographies, recording landmarks, routes, and boundaries. But they also reflect varying perceptions, imaginations, values, and aspirations. This is certainly true of the maps presented here. Over five centuries, empires and explorers along with printers and publishers worked first to trace the outline of a continent that was new to Europeans and then, eventually, to fill in its vast middle. These maps show the steady increase of geographic knowledge of the Americas, but they also demonstrate the economic and political interests that produced that knowledge and the individuals who benefited from it. They hint at what map makers and their sponsors determined was worth documenting, identifying, and, in some cases, possessing. They often erase, obscure, and distort. Put simply: maps are more than cartographic representations of known or imagined physical features on the landscape. As you examine these maps, try to determine the purposes for which they were made and any mistruths, omissions, and distortions they may contain.

Original maps shown are from the private collection of Salt Lake City businessman Stephen Boulay, with additional contributions from the Utah State Historical Society, LDS Church History Department, L. Tom Perry Special Collections at Brigham Young University, Special Collections at the J. Willard Marriott Library, and the American West Center at the University of Utah.

Creator: Philippe Vandermaelen (1795-1869)

Published in: Atlas Universel de Géographie Physique, Politique, Statistique Et Minéralogique

Drawn by the Belgian cartographer Philippe Marie Vandermaelen (1795-1869), this map depicted the region from Lake Timpanogos (Utah Lake) to present day Colorado and Wyoming. It appeared in Vandermaelen’s six-volume Atlas Universel, published in 1827. As the first atlas to depict the entire globe with a large, consistent scale (26 miles to the inch), the individual maps in this atlas could be combined on a globe approximately 7.75 meters in diameter. The Princeton University Library’s has rendered the resulting globe digitally. The fourth volume focused on North America, he illustrated the Trans-Mississippi West in about twenty sheets.

Creator: Carl Christian Franz Radefeld (1788-1874)

Published in: Joseph Meyer (1796-1856), Grosser Hand-Atlas

Place: Hildburghausen

Even if the U.S. government never recognized the expansive state of Deseret, the prolific mapmakers at Meyer’s publishing company Bibliographisches Institut in Hildburghausen, Germany did, if only briefly. Like Young’s map of Deseret in Mitchell’s Universal Atlas, Meyer’s Grosser Hand-Atlas published a rare map of Deseret as originally proposed. That was not a coincidence. Meyer and his cartographer Radefeld relied on Mitchell’s atlas to produce their 1850-1854 editions of the Hand-Atlas.

Creator: James H. Young (1792-18??)

Published in: Samuel Augustus Mitchell (1792-1868), A New Universal Atlas

Place: Philadelphia

Fueled by emerging mass-market interest, atlases experienced a resurgence in popularity in the 1840s and 1850s. Produced for S. Augustus Mitchell’s contribution to that market by his longtime engraver and associate James H. Young, this map captured the territorial expansion of the newly-continental United States in progress. While the eastern United States might look relatively familiar—save the lack of West Virginia as a distinct state—the western territories bear only a vague similarity to the familiar state boundaries that would eventually settle. This map captured an already-reduced Utah Territory that stretched from roughly the Sierra Nevada range to the continental divide.

Note that the map erroneously called that territory by its then-defunct name of Deseret. This particular mid-1850 edition of the atlas had two U.S. maps, with each identifying the new territory by its alternate names. The United States never recognized an entity called “Deseret.” Western political events moved rather quickly at times, so it is understandable that a map prepared in early 1850 and published at the end of the year would not be able to keep up. Nonetheless, the territory which should have been labeled Utah Territory never looked like this.

Creator: Samuel Augustus Mitchell (1792-1868)

Published in: A New Universal Atlas

Publisher: Charles Desilver

Place: Philadelphia

Selling atlases in the mass market was a race as often as it was a contest over accuracy and comprehensiveness. Produced rapidly for Mitchell’s Atlas Universal in 1850 by adding new boundaries to an existing base map from the previous decade, this was one of the first maps to show the new state of California. It had little else going for it. Its intellectual debt to the 1840s meant that Frémont practically authored the Great Basin. The map even identified it as the Fremont Basin to at least the 1855 edition. Over the 1850s, Mitchell updated the map, adding in subsequent editions the cities and counties that had been conspicuously absent in the rushed earlier versions.

I have no bias towards or against any nations. If you see a possible error, it was an honest mistake! I do the best I can with the information I have.

I don't make any claims of perfection in these maps! Keep in mind that source information is often incomplete or conflicts with other sources. I do the best I can with the information that is available to me. Constructive feedback is appreciated (especially if it helps improve the maps!). Most feedback has been positive and helpful. A few people have complained about the maps, saying they are sub-par or even worthless. To those who complain about them? Either help improve them or try to do better!

Each map's homepage has a File History section, which contains a list of previous versions of the map. When I get enough feedback, I update the maps with corrections and upload the new versions to Wikipedia. To report any potential errors, or if you are interested in helping this project, please see my Corrections & Project Help section.

Several new maps are currently under construction, and corrections are also being made to some existing maps. All will be available at when they are complete.
You can help! Please email me, Thomas Lessman, at talessman

REQUIRED: I can ONLY make corrections if If IF you provide the following information:

1. Brief description of error (BEST way: copy the map to your computer, use a program like GIMP, PhotoShop, or Paint Shop Pro to draw the correct borders, and send me the new map.) 2. Your source information, so I can see the information directly and add it to the list of sources for each map. NO SOURCES = NO CHANGE. Period. I simply CANNOT make any changes without source information to justify the change. Please and Thank You!

I appreciate all help and feedback about these maps, especially if it helps improve them! I'm always happy to give credit to those who help, unless they prefer to remain anonymous. Thank you in advance!

14. Also several people have sent me information to help correct minor errors or add missing information.

Map of the Bermudas, or Summer Islands, by Willem Blaeu, who based this work on John Speed's remarkably accurate map of 1626-1627. It shows the island divided into Tribes, and below the map itself appear the names of the first proprietors and the number of Shares assigned to each. A splendid cartouche shows Neptune astride the Royal Arms holding a ship. The larger map of the island is superimposed over a map of the Atlantic with the coastlines of Britain, North America, and Hispaniola to show the relative size and location of Bermuda, which is rendered in miniature beneath the cartouche. The map also contains scale cartouches, coats of arms, and a compass rose with a fleur-de-lis.

In 1609, the English vessel Sea Venture under Sir George Somers wrecked off Bermuda, an event thought to have inspired William Shakespeare's The Tempest (written 1610-11). The surviving Englishmen divided the island into Tribes (later Parishes) and Shares, which are individually listed with their owners along the lower register of the map. Shortly afterward, the Bermudas were granted to the Virginia Company, hence the various references to the Company on the map including the distance to the Roanoke Colony in Virginia.
