Human interaction can be recorded in various ways in our environment, including an interactive map highlighting Glasgow’s trade success. With growing industry comes more interaction; therefore, traces of human existence are visible today. The map displays imperative landmarks and monuments in the Merchant City, close to the ‘heartbeat’ of Glasgow. Trade made Glasgow. Retailed to a tourist in the area, historical and modern sketches will emphasise the city’s change and the strong existence that remained in the present. The industrial movement largely contributes to what Glasgow is today and all are altered by human activity, strongly linking to the Anthropocene.
