Detroit’s historical events and many more recent events have shaped Detroit’s geography and in many ways its current troubles and inequalities. Maps offer great insight into the past and help us visualize sometimes confusing information, but they are only one piece of the puzzle. My goal with DETROITography is to bring human geography to the forefront in Detroit. Maps and data are important, but the thoughts, perceptions, and experiences of Detroit’s nearly 700,000 residents are the most critical component of the changing city.
