DVD Explores New Ways to See the World

Based on the popular and provocative book, Seeing Through Maps, this new DVD, Many Ways to See the World is a fascinating 30-minute exploration into the minds of twelve mapmakers. Discover how their unique backgrounds, philosophies, values, and politics led each to select a particular mathematical formula to create their maps. Learn about the impact those world images have had on us, consciously and unconsciously.

This provocative learning tool uses historical and current images to generate interest in the subject of maps. From the amusing story of how a South-up Australia-centered map was created to learning what Mercator's original intent was for his projection, from Arno Peters' endeavors to provide a map representation that was fair to all peoples to Buckminster Fuller's unique world rendition, Many Ways to See the World explains how the creators of maps have an impact on our world view.

This fast-paced film has three powerful messages that are conveyed through an analysis of maps
  • Your vantage point can alter the "truth."
  • We can only understand the world if we're willing to see things from multiple perspectives.
  • One person's voice can make a huge difference!

Bonus features on the DVD include: over 70 PowerPoint images with links to map resources around the world; preview of Arno Peters: Radical Map, Remarkable Man; radio interviews as MP3 audio files, book excerpts, as well as bonus footage and trailers.

Howard Zinn, author of A People’s History of the United States says. “Many Ways To See The World is more than a fascinating lesson about maps. It opens the mind of the viewer to profound perspectives on the interconnectedness of human beings everywhere. I hope it will be shown in classrooms all over the country.”

Educators and trainers can find many uses including sessions on critical and analytical thinking; cross-cultural training; negotiating differences; and more. Brant Abrahamson of the Teachers’ Press says, “You show cartographers as real people who have specific goals in mind. Their pictures and your comments about them feed into your ‘empowerment’ sub-theme--that change comes because individuals take initiatives.”

Many Ways To See The World is $89 for institutions, which includes institutional rights to reproduce the DVD for internal use at one physical location. The cost of the DVD is $39.95 for individuals.
