    Our reality rests on an invisible world of information. The traces are all around us. Transforming enormous datasets into rich maps and visualizations, James Cheshire and Oliver Uberti explore these hidden patterns in human society. With their joyfully inquisitive approach, Cheshire and Uberti investigate happiness levels around the globe, track the undersea cables and cell towers that connect us, examine the concealed scars of geopolitics, and illustrate how a warming planet affects everything from hurricanes to the hajj. Filled with surprising facts and beautifully designed graphics, ‘Atlas of the Invisible’ invites readers to revel in the secrets of a newly visible world.
