Mapping is a practice whose origins can be traced back to the Upper Paleolithic period and to civilizations as primordial as the Cro-Magnon man (Harley & Woodward, 1987). While the clay tablet or parchment paper maps produced during these earlier eras were primitive applications by today’s standards, their use was invaluable for the times. Though the creators of these early maps were not using any of the sophisticated technologies available today, their contribution to the foundation of modern technologies is clearly in evidence. No matter the subject being illustrated, authors of these early maps were using some type of data for their production.
