These maps are very different than most maps we have talked about in class. Kirk Goldsberry is a cartographer who now maps shots on a basketball court. Kirk Goldsberry has a book, Sprawlball, with hundreds of maps, and this article puts it as, “At its heart, “SprawlBall” is a book of maps. It’s a geography book” (Strauss). This link is just an article with a couple of maps, as I could not find a website that contained a great number of his maps, but if you look up “Kirk Goldsberry Shot Maps” on Google Images, hundreds of unique and interesting maps will show up. I think Kirk Goldsberry’s work is a novel way of using maps.
