Abstract

Late in the 19th century the develoment of photo-engraving enabled the daily press to illustrate with timely maps the geographic details of breaking news. Numerous developments in printing technology, telecommunications, and newspaper publishing promoted an increase in cartographic illustration in daily newspapers. Technological innovation in the 20th century made the news almost as graphic as it was timely.-from Author
