Huffman, Daniel

Honorary Fellow
Website: somethingaboutmaps.com
Email: dhuffman@wisc.edu
Office: M390
Interests: I'm interested in cartographic aesthetics. As insensate machines take over more and more mapmaking tasks, how can we restore the human, emotional, artistic touch to our representations of space? Maps are still read by humans, even if they are not 100% human-produced, and we will be more successful if we do not alienate our audience with soulless productions.
