Motro Article

Until I had read this article, I had always thought of maps being used in history books and other literature to demarcate important events. The wide breadth of map use is fascinating to me as I continue to learn the many applications of them. The military negotiations were largely centered around the drawing of the map and had the Israelites known the significance of the map they may have drawn it differently. The biggest thing I learned about maps from this article is that people can interpret maps in different ways and the clarity of the message being portrayed by the map is very important. While today’s technology and programs allow cartographers an easier way to design a map, it is still just as important to take the time to create an effective map.
