The map is not simply a representation of existing space, or a mirror of the earth’s surface. It is rather a multi-faceted instrument expressing that the power to represent is the power to order, and that the rationality of geometrical space could influence people’s lived spaces through its role as a planning tool. These issues are discussed with three examples from Swedish modernity; the production of land survey maps, the early economic mapping, and the map’s role in welfare planning. It is concluded that maps are important study objects if one wants to analyse the formation of modern society.
