Awards and Critical Acclaim for Where the Animals Go

BCS/SOC Conference 2017

CDRC Deputy Director James Cheshire’s co-authored book “Where the Animals Go” has been awarded both the “John C. Bartholomew Award for Printed Mapping” and the “British Cartographic Society Award” at this year’s British Cartographic Society Conference. The judges said the maps within the book were “clever and attractive visualisations of multi-scale, multi-dimensional and fascinating geographic data…beautifully presented.”

September 2017 also saw the book published in North America, Germany and France to widespread critical acclaim. Scientific American described the book as ‘A stunning translation of movement onto paper’, whilst the Washington Post said it was “ravishing” and Le Monde said the book was “magnifique”. To date Where the Animals Go has been reviewed or featured in over 30 major media outlets including the BBC’s World at One and NPR’s Here and Now, Science and Frankfurter Allgemeine.

Where the Animals Go was co-authored by James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti. More information is available here: wheretheanimalsgo.com
