Drawing the World ... a Story of Cartography

Part 1
The Origin of the Earth and the "surrounding” Universe are the fixed starting point for this Story. It takes us from the “Big Bang” 15 billion years ago, over the various sub structures of our Universe to the fighting physical elements that constantly change the outer appearance of the Earth....
Part 2
...and this evolving surface paired with mankind’s inevitability to find the-way-back, requires a fixed set of Concepts of Cartography to enable map drawing being a universal tool. Meaning that concepts of
• Projections
• Signs
• Scales
• Type of maps have been “standardised” to ease up the worldwide use of maps drawn....
Part 3
.... from the very early days until today. But the tale of cartography is most of all the fascinating History ofMapmakers and Maps - and the Story Behind. Being able to manage the dreams of mapmakers drawing the world methods and tools was invented - and even used back in the pre-historic times.
The cartographic development took speed when Gutenberg in Europe introduced to the world the first method of multiple printing. And then the continents - one-by-one
• Asia - finding the sea way to India
• Africa - exploiting the mysterious continent
• America - visiting the new world
• Australia - finding the huge southern land of the southern hemisphere
was discovered by a huge fleet of ships and explorers travelling and outlining the “conquered” spots as they strived forward.
Mapmaking really to speed from the early part of 1200 century....
Part 4
.... continuing over the following eight centuries using traditional, but improved methods and tools until Modem Mapmaking took advantages of the available electronic, aviation and space technologies - but as long as “we” are involved, it can still be boiled down to mastering correct spelling and hitting the correct key!
