On the Exactitude of Maps 

By Felipe Schmidt Fonseca (BR) and Rebekka Jochem (DE)

Digital maps representing the physical world are built and updated in real-time as people use their devices to navigate public space. Even while wandering aimlessly, users generate data trails which are captured and fed back into a cybernetic leviathan. On the Exactitude of Maps contrasts user reviews with excerpts from critical reflections to raise questions about the ownership of geospatial data in a global economy and what that implies for the generation of value in contemporary cities.
