McGill is delighted to weclome D. R. Fraser Taylor, who will deliver the 2014 Killam Lecture in the Social Sciences. Dr. Taylor introduced the world to the power of cybercartography, an enhanced form of multimedia mapping using geographic information management, to deepen our understanding of socio-economic issues. In Canada, and around the world, his cybercartographic atlases have delivered new perspectives and a way to comprehend complex issues such as trade and economic patterns, international development, and the risk of homelessness.
