Cartography is the study of maps or more specifically map making. Today most people rely on smartphone GPS navigation systems, but the process of making maps is as old as cave painting! Over the centuries maps were refined to be as detailed and accurate as possible and more portable than a cave painting. We most often see paper maps of places to explore, like our museum campus map or ones of your favorite hiking trails. Maps teach us geography and history and can chart everything from whole galaxies to even our walk to school. What can maps show us that we can’t see on our own? Using your observation skills, create a map of your house, yard or a favorite walking route.
