“China’s Reality” is the title of this week’s cover story in TIME magazine. The map on the cover shows both China and Taiwan in yellow. That’s angered Taiwanese authorities who have written the publication to insist the error be corrected. They feel that it suggests that Taiwan is in fact part of China, which, they believe is not the case. Just 26 countries in the world recognize Taiwan as an independent country.

There’s been a lot of study about how we understand and interpret space. I was lucky enough to study with two key people who looked at those issues when I was at Penn State. Peter Gould, who authored the book in the title (and passed away a few years ago) and Roger Downs, who I understand is giving the keynote at UCGIS this week. Researchers in Germany have concluded from their studies that there is “no single brain region serves as a ‘map’ in our heads. Instead, some brain regions help us to learn information about landmarks and spatial layouts as we continue to move through a new environment, while other areas act to integrate this new information early on, and then their work is done.”
