Guerrilla Cartography crowdsources maps on a theme and compiles them into atlases.

Atlas in a Day: Migration is the result of a challenge by Guerrilla Cartography to research and design an atlas in 24 hours on October 5, 2019. The maps in this atlas interpret the theme of migration in diverse ways, considering the movements of people, animals, climates, physical materials and cultural artifacts over time and space. Some of them represent the culmination of years of research on a critical topic; others are quick sketches inspired by current events and concerns. Collectively, they add substance and content to one of the most critical issues our planet faces today. Read more about the creation process and theme on our Atlas in a Day page!

Water: An Atlas is the second collaborative atlas project by Guerrilla Cartography. This atlas continues the collaborative spirit and narrative range originally brought to life in our first atlas, Food: An Atlas. Water, like food, is required to sustain human lifeā€”and so it is a natural choice for our second published project. In its pages you an explore how humans interface with water: controlling, politicizing, commodifying, and polluting it; how water is a harbinger of climate change and how water inspires our imagination and exploration.

Food: An Atlas is a crowdsourced project of guerrilla cartography and publishing. The atlas endeavors to map food in its myriad contexts and conditions at many scales of research and geography. Scores of cartographers and food researchers just traditional cartography, poster art, infographics, and journalistic text-blocking to render the map as a narrative device in the spirit of knowledge-caching and -sharing.

Food: An Atlas is in its second printing and web sales have resumed! After selling out of the initial 1,600 unit print run and in response to requests, we have arranged for another printing.
