Some Basic Facts about Maps from an Old Book

While reading an old book by Captain R.P.Cave found some easy and useful facts about maps and thought of  sharing with you all.Here they are:

  • A map is a  representation on paper of a certain area of country.
  • Fundamentally, a map is nothing more than a picture from which one can visualise the subject which it portrays.
  • A map is a diagram showing the details and features which exists on the ground.
  • A map can never be completely up to date ,for there must must always be features which have appeared since the map was made.
  • A map cannot show everything because there is not room to do so.
