Book excerpt: Cybercartography in a Reconciliation Community: Engaging Intersecting Perspectives, Volume Eight gathers perspectives on issues related to reconciliation-primarily in a residential school context-and the unifying power of cybercartography in identifying intersections in disparate perspectives, understanding approaches toward reconciliation and education, and enacting reflexivity in research and knowledge dissemination. The positionality aspect of reflexivity is reflected in the chapter contributions concerning various aspects of cybercartographic atlas design and development research. The book offers theoretical and practical knowledge of collaborative transdisciplinary research through its reflexive assessment of the relationships, processes and knowledge involved in cybercartographic research. Using, most specifically, the Residential Schools Land Memory Mapping Project for context, the book describes the project's innovative collaborative approach to mapping institutional material and volunteered geographic information. Exploring cybercartography through the lens of this atlas project provides for a comprehensive understanding of both cybercartography and transdisciplinary research, while informing the reader of education and reconciliation initiatives in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Italy. Includes worldwide examples of reconciliation work, especially related to residential schools, and examines common themes in the issues discussed Offers both conceptual and applied dimensions, and provides a good example of a reflexive approach to both research and knowledge dissemination Addresses a modern application for cybercartography that is of considerable societal importance Provides historiographical accounts of atlas-making processes, multidisciplinary perspectives on research issues and conceptual clarifications
