Critical acclaim for James’s wildlife atlas

“Where the Animals Go” – C’est magnifique!

Dr 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. Its 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’, while the Washington Post said it was “ravishing” and Le Monde declared the book to be “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, the journal Science and the Frankfurter Allgemeine.

Where the Animals Go is co-authored by James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti.
