Map - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Map - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: "map-making is cartography; see that page for further discussion of the history of maps and map-making.

Map-making dates back to the Stone Age and appears to predate written language by several millennia. One of the oldest surviving maps is painted on a wall of the Catal Huyuk settlement in south-central Anatolia (now Turkey); it dates from about 6200 BC. [1] One who makes maps professionally or privately is called a cartographer."
