nice link! :-)
have both books by dodge-kitchin. though the atlas is a very nice
(fullcolor, etc), the one i would recommend is 'mapping cyberspace', has
lots of info and facts.
the work of this two researchers-informationsystem-geographers is very
my little contribution:
(an article wrote in 2002 -with slight updates upto 2004- about
also refers to representation of web-spatialization).
spanish only, sorry, but has lots of links in references' section for
interested in this topic.
