When you look at a map, what features do you use to identify location? For most of us, most of the time, this is likely to be roads and cities, and other ‘man-made’ features.
This map offers a view of what the land, in this case around the Oak Ridges Moraine area of Ontario, might have looked like before man-made features were built. In particular, the key identifiers here are waterways that have their start in the Moraine. Elevation and flow direction rendering shows how waterways are formed and, in turn, form the landscape. Waterway significance is approximated according to number of tributaries. This indicates the geographic reach of the waterway, though not necessarily the volume.
This map is meant to tell a story, both of what might have been, and of how we view what is. This, in turn, also tells a story about ourselves and how we understand the land around us.
