I book I often meant to read was Stephen Johnson’s book, The Ghost Map, about how London city created this map of the water collection points. It was believed at the time that Cholera was spread by bad odours, and people hadn’t yet made the connection between water and the spread of the disease. Apparently the isolated the outbreak to one single well. But the Map was necessary in order to do that. Hence it’s name, the Ghost map. Stephen’s blog is here:
I know that UCD summer program includes something about mapping. I wonder if the Ghost map will come into it.
