Foreword

Foreword

It’s not surprising that discovery has always been rooted in the art and science of mapping. Maps represent many complex relations and hordes of data, yet a child is intuitively able to navigate and comprehend them. Maps have long been the information windows through which explorers and others have peered to find answers. Maps tell the story of the past, record the present, and reveal the future.

Today is no different from the past in that most information—whether business or personal—has a strong relational tie to the place where we reside. The real world provides a commonly understood framework for the endless fields of digital data—whether it lives on the Internet, your corporate network, your desktop, or your mobile device.
