Maps categorize, define, arrange, locate, designate and thereby (re-)produce certain conceptions of the world. They affect our thinking and acting and are in this sense powerful. The new technical possibilities (esp. GIS, Web 2.0 cartography, georeferenced services) lead to changed conditions of the production and consumption of maps and go along with a boom of map-use. Against this background, the paper presents approaches of a critical cartography which analyses the social and discursive contexts as well as the social effects of cartography.
