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:

“When I had mapped the pond ... I laid a rule on the *map* lengthwise, and then breadthwise, and found, to my surprise, that the line of greatest length intersected the line of greatest breadth exactly at the point of greatest depth.”

—Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

“A *map* of the world that does not include Utopia is not worth even glancing at, for it leaves out the one country at which Humanity is always landing.”

—Oscar Wilde (1854–1900)

“If all the ways I have been along were marked on a *map* and joined up with a line, it might represent a minotaur.”

—Pablo Picasso (1881–1973)
