What is a map? By Winnie the Pooh

Rabbit appeals to authority by relying on the map to find their way so they don't get lost...

Maps are accurate drawings of different arears of the world. Different types of maps give us different information about the arear shown. The scale of the map helps the reader calculate the real size and distances between places shown on the map. We say that maps can either have a small or a large scale.
