How Maps Lie

Presented by: David Glassett

All maps lie, but some stretch the truth more than others. Come find out the power maps have for good (or for bad) to be visual storytellers. From a real-life mapmaker, get the behind-the-scenes scoop on why all maps lie and what you can (or cannot) do about it. You’ll come away knowing how to think critically about the maps splashed in front of you on the internet, TV, or in newspapers, magazines, and textbooks.

David loves seeing light in others’ eyes. In his work, he sees that in two ways: exploring a great map and addressing personal or business needs through leadership coaching. He’s both a cartographer and a leadership coach. In his maps, he loves exploring personal and historic topics. He’s been mapping professionally for 15 years and has taught cartography at the college level. He’s also a leadership coach. That means he helps people achieve greater leadership possibilities, whether that’s in their business or personal life. Outside of maps and coaching, he loves being with his family making music, planning and taking road trips, creating wholesome homemade food, and reading. You can learn more about his work and see a few of his maps at
