*** ABOUT


"Cognitive mapping" (F.Jameson)

via "Navigating neoliberalism" article:

    "This gets to the heart of what political theorist Fredric Jameson calls ‘cognitive mapping’. According to him, the left lacks cognitive mapping — the means to make our own world intelligible to ourselves through a situational understanding of our own position. Jameson draws upon the urban theorist Kevin Lynch, who argues (in his book, The Image of the City) that in designing urban spaces one must take into account how people navigate their way around cities. In encountering a new city, the individual is left without any cognitive map of the space and is forced to develop one through habit. As Lynch argues, the urban designer can assist this process by strategically situating landmarks and other easily recognisable symbols in order to provide the grounds for the development of a cognitive map."




Technical infrastructure


    Why Google Maps?

Because self-hosting OSM is still not simple to do properly, and there's so little time.

Want to help out? → info@totalism.org !
Also see 🔗todos ("Migrate maps to Open Street Maps").



    API: KML backup, export & convert

Google Maps API -> totalism.org API -> Backup / Convert

Developed as "cht-maps-export" and part of the 🔗workflow.

* Track all changes on the maps with git.
* You can download KMLs for all of the maps, or use the .GPX versions offline with OsmAnd (or example).





EU Routes / Trails ideas

🔗trails

Trans-Europe transit ("A to B") in all directions, done by hitchhiking or car.
Normal easy hitching speed is ~300km per day (with exit and entry), so trails are organised to include stops with distances like that.

Contact to join exploring some of these trails → info@totalism.org .
