This publication is meant for functions of on-line electronic mapping, referred to as mashups (or composite application), and to investigate the mapping practices in on-line socio-technical controversies. The speculation recommend is that the power to create an internet map accompanies the formation of on-line viewers and gives aid for a place in a debate at the Web.
The first half presents a research of the map:
- a mix of map and statistical reason
- crosses among map theories and CIS theories
- contemporary advancements in scanning the map, from Geographic details platforms (GIS) to net map.

Map as a tool to "make do" is therefore changed via those phases of production, starting from electronic information of their viewing, earlier than describing the development of the map as a device for visible proof in public debates, and finishing with an research of the delegation motion opposed to net users.
The 3rd part offers an research of those mapping practices within the case learn of the debate over nuclear radiation following the coincidence on the Fukushima plant on March eleven, 2011. Techno-semiotic approach utilized to this corpus of radiation map is supplemented by means of an research of internet graphs, derived from "digital equipment" and graph concept, accompanying the research of the former steps maps (creating Geiger information or retrieving records online), but in addition their circulation, as soon as maps are made.
