Map

A map is a visual representation of an area – a symbolic depiction highlighting relationships between elements of that space such as objects, regions, and themes.

Many maps are static two-dimensional, geometrically accurate (or approximately accurate) representations of three-dimensional space, while others are dynamic or interactive, even three-dimensional. Although most commonly used to depict geography, maps may represent any space, real or imagined, without regard to context or scale; e.g. brain mapping, DNA mapping, and extraterrestrial mapping.

Famous quotes containing the word map:

    You can always tell a Midwestern couple in Europe because they will be standing in the middle of a busy intersection looking at a wind-blown map and arguing over which way is west. European cities, with their wandering streets and undisciplined alleys, drive Midwesterners practically insane.
    Bill Bryson (b. 1951)

    Allen Tate (1899–1979)

    Unless, governor, teacher inspector, visitor,
    This map becomes their window and these windows
    That open on their lives like crouching tombs
    Break, O break open,
    Stephen Spender (1909–1995)
