In her lecture on Friday 24th, Finola O'Kane described how the artist Fisher used pictorial representation to re-present the Irish Landscape to potential tourists in the late 1700s. The paintings made certain areas more popular to visit as tourists flocked to see the view made in Fisher's paintings. Landowners became conscious of this, and started to preserve these views, and therefore the landscape around them.
Re-presenting or re-mapping a city/town to its inhabitants (eg: the london cycle route map) is an effective way of changing how it is used.
