Denis Wood's thesis is carried forth in his book SEEING THROUGH MAPS at http://www.odtmaps.com/detail.asp_Q_product_id_E_STM-2-BK which was co-authored by Ward Kaiser and myself. Another resource to understand the "hidden" nature and bias of maps is the DVD titled MANY WAYS TO SEE THE WORLD at http://www.odtmaps.com/detail.asp_Q_product_id_E_MW-DVD.
An excellent resource (that features clip's of Denis Wood deconstructing tha nature of maps)is the ARNO PETERS dvd, which has a trailer on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=osQN7aSQV9w&feature=user This also includes the map clip from the WEST WING TV show. Anyone can host a local screening of this DVD and get a copy free from the publisher by going to http://arnopeters.bravenewtheaters.com/
