Maps: Tracking their history through time
Map making is also known as cartography. The practice not only helps people navigate, but explain important events throughout history. The earliest maps are known to have been celestial ones that tracked constellations as far back as 16,500 B.C. Interest in discovering new lands led to navigational maps that helped explorers cover terrain using drawn landmarks and the location of stars. Today, modern cartography has access to technology that provides details such as elevation and depth that are referred to for both military and recreational functions.
