This topic enables us to explore different types of maps that we never thought existed.
I am starting of my research with the basic definitions of what is defines as a map.
A diagram or collection of data showing the spatial arrangement or distribution of something over an area:
A representation, usually on a flat surface, as of the features of an area of the earth or a portion of the heavens, showing them in their respective forms, sizes, and relationships according to some convention of representation: “a map of Canada.”
A map like delineation, representation, or reflection of anything:”The old man’s face is a map of time.”
A picture or chart that shows the rivers, mountains, streets, etc., in a particular area
A picture or chart that shows the different parts of something
A representation usually on a flat surface of the whole or a part of an area
A representation of the celestial sphere or a part of it
Definition I found most interesting
A map is a symbolic depiction highlighting relationships between elements of some space, such as objects, regions, and themes.
Many maps are static two-dimensional, geometrically accurate (or approximately accurate) representations of three-dimensional space, while others are dynamic or interactive, even three-dimensional. Although most commonly used to depict geography, maps may represent any space, real or imagined, without regard to context or scale; e.g. brain mapping, DNA mapping and extraterrestrial mapping.
