"In fact all maps lie, even good ones," says Mark Monmonier, Distinguished Professor of Geography and author of How to Lie With Maps. A third edition was recently published more than two decades after the second, an intervening period in which the world wide web has profoundly reshaped the public perception and usage of maps. He describes Google Maps as “an enormously valuable tool” both in itself, and as a platform for a variety of different mash-ups that allow people to put their own data on it. Monmonier was featured in the Financial Times article "How to lie with maps." 

Monmonier's book was also cited in the Financial Times article "Data visualisation: how the FT newsroom designs maps."
