An essential component of any research or policy initiative should include an assessment of “how much we know” about a particular subject. This could be information we know from books, chapters, journal articles, and presentations about any subject, including agriculture, mineral economies, industries or the many kinds of services included in the tertiary and quaternary sectors. An additional source of information available is from electronic databases, such as Google, in which one can insert key words into the Search Bar and learn the amount or volume of hyperlinks or electronic data entries about a subject. The entry may be for a specific topic, such as mining or tourism, but also there can be combinations of words entered, such as mining in Silesia or tourism in Poland or banking in Warsaw.
Utilizing such a knowledge base can and will help policy makers, scholars and individual business leaders to make decisions about the location or relocation of economic activities or scholars to address neglected topics that merit their attention. Maps and tables of these ‘knowledge” bases are important elements or components in any “knowledge geography” research. “Knowledge maps” will basically reveal the unevenness that exists in the real world, whether that world be Poland, southern Poland, major cities within Poland or even the voivodeships within the country. The “gaps” also can be used to portray “the geographies of silence” that exist. Examples include “knowledge maps” of service economies: banking, R and D, health care, education, sustainability and tourism.
This paper explores the concepts of “knowledge geography” and the “geographies of silence” and includes examples of maps about economic activities and development within Poland.
