In the beginning people charted their path to other locations by land marks or the stars.
Maps are directions by relativity. The direction you need to take to get to a place depends where you are starting standing.
Now people use GPS for hunting, fishing, camping or driving/riding through deserts in races.
My interest in maps is to produce a virtual trip to Egypt, starting at the south end up to Cairo.
My map will include historic cities and the remains of ancient structures.
