Monmonier weighs in on Trump's NOAA map manipulation in CityLab

Mark Monmonier 2016"It’s probably indicative of the special respect for maps, that he [President Trump] thought that his alteration of this map would take precedence over the facts that were already printed on it," says Mark Monmonier, Distinguished Professor of Geography and author of How to Lie with Maps. "We need to be ever more vigilant of the way in which maps might be altered, disrespected, or suppressed." Monmonier was featured in the CityLab article "Yes, Maps Can Lie. But Not Like This." 09/13/19
