ABSTRACT

Creative geo-visualization is the visual representation of creative forms of data and thinking with spatial information - visualization that preserves, represents, and generates a more nuanced, contextual, and deeply contingent meanings of place and people with humanistic and artistic approaches. Creative geovisualization expands the capacity of geovisualization and maps by building a new space that intersects digital spatial humanities, critical mapping, and the convergence of geography and arts. Various encompassing concepts and debates around non-representational theory, creative geographies, and deep maps and spatial narratives are discussed as a theoretical ground of this discussion. I also present diverse modes of creative engagements and practices as a newly generated form of geographic visualization, particularly through the use of emerging digital mapping technologies. Creative geovisualization allows us to go beyond the Cartesian understanding of space, and move towards imagining and producing qualitative, artistic, and humanistic visualizations that engage different forms of embodied, processual, relational, and even affective geographies. This reifies that the power of visualization and mapping are more than re-presentation of reality, but becomes creative as it evolves in process and takes a creative turn.
