Neogeography has been something that we have been surrounded by since the invention of the internet, and much more so since the invention of the smartphone. Neogeography "explores the perception of the geographical space by purely subjective means, often involving digital art and springs from the Geospatial Web" (Papadimitriou 71). It has made traditional digital cartography more personal and more artistic than it ever has been before.
Neogeography allows the user to utilize different digital mediums other than photography, such as geo-tagging, sound, and video. All of this data becomes digital data encoded and geo-referenced this type of data is central for neogeography.
