Volume I, Issue 2

This quarter's issue of the Parsons Journal for Information Mapping (PJIM)
brings another wide variety of innovative, creative, and unique projects
completed by our worldwide group of contributors. We showcase two
interactive projects along with two well-researched and provoking essays.

While this marks our second issue our Editorial Board has seen a vast
majority of interest in the concept of globalization and its affect on
social interactions among the world's inhabitants. The projects and essays
in this issue bring forth various examples of global, local, geospatial
mapping, and social connectivity. We thank all of our contributors for
their excellent work and proudly present their successes to our
subscribers.

Abstract

The map can be active, malleable, open source fed, and even, in a sense,
intelligent and able to adapt. The possibility also exists for this map to
have a function that based on key words will search databases on-line to
find maps, animations, histories and stories etc to place within it for
your study and engagement. The map is thus a platform and yet is active.
Community is possible as people can communicate graphically in works
placed on the map and in building mode in the tool. All the tropes of
locative media are to be in a mapping system of channels of augmentation
and a spatial net. The software by design will allow development on the
map and communication like programs such as second life but in mapping
itself.
