The mapping of 500 DAYS OF SUMMER: A processual approach to cinematic cartography
Author(s): Lukinbeal, Chris
In this paper, I engage in a cartographic analysis of 500 DAYS OF SUMMER. I use the concepts of the map and tour and relate them to cartography as representation and practice. Where a focus on cartography as a representation enhances a textual analysis of a film, cartography as practice emphasises the map production process. Central to the map production process is geocoding, ground truthing, and indexing. Finally, this paper offers a cartographic tour of the film that provides an example of how a processual approach to cinematic cartography can be put into practice to produce an affective geovisualisation.
