Maps. Generally speaking, the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of maps is a map of a city, country, or continent. However as I started to research further into maps I discovered that maps don’t simply consist of showing a place around the globe. They can be created through many different mediums and for many different purposes.
Maps can be used to develop thought processes and ideas or to simply present the idea itself. Through searching the internet I have found many different interpretations of maps that have been created by thinking outside the box.
Maps can depict historical timelines and statistics. it is this creative thinking that make maps applicable to nearly everything around us. I hope to further my understanding in maps and be able to consider a wide range of different maps and mapping skills for my own mapping project and experiment with those I find through my research.
