Recent experimental data in elastic electron-nucleon scattering both at low and large momentum transfers will be discussed. The current precision measurements on the nucleon electromagnetic form factors will be used to map out the transverse charge densities in proton and neutron. The framework will be extended to map out charge densities in higher spin systems, such as the deuteron and nucleon resonances. It will be shown how a field theoretic consistent picture emerges both of densities and of the shape of a relativistic many body system.
