    I Invented the Map

    I Actually Have A High School Teacher To Thank...

    for my love of maps. He was a great teacher and I had him in 10th and 11th grade. He taught History and Geography. I hated when we had to learn maps. Our test on maps would be a blank map and we had to fill in everything. But one day, he made the connection for me somehow. He...

    The Road To Somewhere...

    Maps. Fascinating things. Never really needed any, because for some reason, I always know where I'm going. I sometimes lose my way, but never direction. I never get lost, somehow. But I love maps. Like I said, fascinating stuff. Especially since the dawn of satellite photography...

    I Love Ordnance Survey Maps

    One of the things that makes me proud to be British is Ordnance Survey maps. In my time I have scanned over maps from many different countries, but none of them compare to Ordnance Survey maps in their ability to express the landscape symbolically and precisely. I cannot...

    I Also Love Maps

    I will pull out my world atlas and look at different countries and the names of their various cities and daydream about their culture and some of the people i know who are from there. Looking at maps always takes me on trips in my mind :) Maps are beautiful :)

    Lost Cause

    Have you ever noticed that maps have some of the most brilliant colors on them?   I have seen very few black and white maps.  I love maps and globes but unfortunately I can't read them.  I get lost a lot because if this.

    I Certainly Love Maps

    I use to use them daily as a patrol officer and later as a chauffeur. Was one of the first classes at my high school to take geography and did the ROTC mapping competitions back in the day   Yep great tools for everyday life

    Maps Make Us Feel Like God

    Maps have always interested me.  Its more than the mere fact that they are useful and get us to new places.  I like historical maps, fictitious maps, battle maps, treasure maps.  They give the observer a sense of place, spacial order, and control.  They...
