Maps are rarely right or wrong; they are simply different versions of the truth. The meaning people find in a map can reinforce or challenge their understanding, and people are much more likely to trust a map if it presents a version of the truth that they already believe in. Using 101 maps, graphs, charts, and plots of the 2016 presidential election in the United States, Thematic Mapping: 101 Inspiring Ways to Visualise Empirical Data explores the rich diversity of thematic mapping and the visual representation of data. Each map illustrates a different approach to the same data, and all lead to different maps and different ways of seeing different shades of truth.
