idea

Lying with maps is a very important part

Technology has given people the power to lie a lot more easier

Most people just see how good a map looks, without much information.

Scales can also help lie making it less accurate.

The closer you zoom into a map the more the more accurate it is

Must be an equal distribution of informing and impressing

Cartography, the art and science of making maps

  • For a map to be really good set up it has to be interesting and informative..
  • It has to say what things represent and have things that catch peoples attention.
  • This map is of the world at night ,the lights represents what countries have there lights on at night which could also mean which countries are richer then others.
  • The way I can tell is that a lot of countries in Africa don’t have there lights off which probably means they don’t have money to be spending on electricity or aren’t as advanced as the other countries

The way that this maps lie are

They do tell you what things are. it doesn’t say were a specific person is at. It doesn’t say where the connections are going to.
