A collection of 429 social-economical illustrations, maps and cartograms made with a Cartophoot. The cartophoot was developed by prof. Dr. E.W. Hofstee (1909-1987).
Collection of cartograms, and other images from the former university department of Sociology and sociography. The collection is closely related to the scientific work of prof. Dr. E.W. Hofstee (1909-1987), the father of social sciences at Wageningen University. He is well known for his physical approach to social issues in which he used a lot of maps. He developed the so-called Cartophoot to easily create maps with statistical data. The Cartophoot consists of a collection of different shaded puzzle pieces with a frame in the form of the Netherlands, or a province, to put them in. By photographing it, in this case on glass slides, they rapidly reproduced a thematic map suitable for publication.
