Invasion, Secession, Disputed Borders... A Dilemma for Map Makers?

Most of us tend to think of national borders as non-controversial – clearly marked, without ambiguity. And in most cases, they are. 

But recent events in Ukraine remind us that country borders are not static. They shift, change, evaporate even, causing cartographers to scramble to keep maps current.

Who Decides When a Border Gets Changed?

An important question, because when a boundary is drawn on a map, especially an official map, it conveys a message to viewers.

Map Resources' governing policy regarding boundaries is to follow the actions of the US State Department.  When a boundary, or a new country, is recognized by the State Department, we consider it official and update our maps. 

Which can be a huge undertaking. When the South Sudan was recognized in 2011, it caused a ripple effect throughout our international map collection, requiring updates of the 2 countries of Sudan and South Sudan,  all maps of Africa, regional maps, plus EVERY world map!

Depicting Ambiguous Borders

Sometimes the precise location of a border is disputed over a long period of time, with little hope of agreement.  In such cases, Map Resources uses a dots or dashes instead of a solid line to show the border. 

Within the Adobe Illustrator file, the disputed borders are placed in a separate Illustrator layer to further distinguish them from official boundaries. 

 

How Will Crimea and Ukraine Be Portrayed?

President Obama said that the US will not recognize the Crimea as part of Russia, and that declaration is echoed by European countries. So it's clear that an official update of map borders is not imminent. 

However, there's still a need to portray the area on a map.  In fact, the conflict will bring even more focus to the area and generate a greater need for maps.

Map Resources will use colors and dashed lines to depict the current ambiguity and watch future developments.  No doubt the situation will present a challenge to all cartographers, whose job it is to accurately portray country boundaries, even when they don’t exist.
