Are you a map fanatic?

4 posts in this topic

In the thread "Speaking of gifts and inlaws," in MIL Anonymous, a couple of members spoke of their love of maps. Both atlases and street/directional maps were mentioned.

So now I'm wondering, are you into maps? And, if so, perhaps you have a collection of atlases or wish you did? How about cultural atlases, - you know,  the kind that show you the changing map of a country over the centuries and teach you about the culture, as well? Or maybe it's the maps of specific towns/cities that fascinate you? Whatever kind of maps you enjoy and why, please tell us about it below...

I think my real calling is to be a cartographer (the nerd who draws the maps). Maps have always fascinated me. All 3 of my kids could read a road map before age 10...I think it should be a required life skill. Two of the GB are already confident map readers (ages 9 & 12)...haven't had the chance to train the others, but we'll get to it. The 4yo GB is only interested in the sun roof at this point.
