A collection of 429 socioeconomic illustrations, maps and cartograms made with a cartophoot. The cartophoot was developed by professor E.W. Hofstee (1909-1987).
The collection comes 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 differently 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.
