A glimpse into the map making industry

The history of map making or cartography starts as early as 16,500 BCE when the first travellers made cave paintings and rock carvings depicting hills and mountains. Fast forward to 600 BCE, when the Babylonians produced the very first “world map”, based on accurate surveying. The Chinese developed, in the 9th century already, a very…
