Mapping the World (Watts Library)by Walter G. Oleksy
In ancient times, people knew little about the lands beyond their own or about Earth. It took the work and wisdom of explorers and mapmakers to create the first world maps. One early attempt at mapping the world was done in second century A.D. by Ptolemy. He compiled all the known information about the world's geography into a set of books. His work would be an important influence on world maps for centuries. Learn about how further exploration and new technologies led to more accurate maps of the world.
