Abstract

You can learn a lot about a city by mapping it – especially if the maps go beyond streets and delve into everything from the best way to avoid surveillance cameras to how distinct smells and car usage can be broken into districts. Shobe, a PSU geography professor, gives an entertaining look behind the new book, “Portlandness,” which he wrote with fellow PSU geographer David Banis. The maps – and Shobe’s talk -- offer insight into the history, culture and myths about the city.
