  8. 8. What’s the point?<br />Communicating with maps – 1 map can convey many different meanings; information communicated is not always consistent<br />Interpretation of maps – the same map viewed by 2 people cannot conclude that they will see the same things; <br />Identify individual vs Collective Patterns – did some use more defined map parameters, such as a seeing the world as flat or more of a circular world? Or was there a pattern that involves more of an inclusive portrayal of the environment (flora, fauna) <br />
