One of the activities that was done in the past years that benefits the people is the maps. They were created in a manner that requires much work, endurance, set of skill, and many more so that an up to date map could be produced. In this present time w can be able to use the applications or software developed to see the map. But in the early days they use the produced map and they had to be updated regularly. Let us see the history and process.

The short documentary presented above explains well the history of making maps in the old days. They had made a video that shows how it was done and the process that they had to undergo. You can see that they had to do it manually by travelling to the different areas so they could see the differences from the recent one and they could update the maps. They also show how they do the updating of maps so that they will not have to draw again all the whole map.

The use of a map is very important in many things. Usually we know that we need a map when we are traveling and want to know the location of a place that we are not familiar of. We also usually see the world map during our school days but we do not know anything how it was done. Now we can understand clearly through the video that is shared above.
