Early world maps Antiquity Babylonian Imago Mundi (c. 600 BCE) A Babylonian world map, known as the Imago Mundi, is commonly dated to the 6th century BCE.[1][2] The map as reconstructed by Eckhard Unger shows Babylon on the Euphrates, surrounded by a circular landmass showing Assyria, Urartu (Armenia)[3] and several cities, in turn surrounded by a "bitter river" (Oceanus), with seven islands arranged around it so as to form a seven-pointed star. The accompanying text mentions seven outer regions beyond the encircling ocean. The descriptions of five of them have survived:[4] the third island is where "the winged bird ends not his flight," i.e., cannot reach.on the fourth island "the light is brighter than that of sunset or stars": it lay in the northwest, and after sunset in summer was practically in semi-obscurity.The fifth island, due north, lay in complete darkness, a land "where one sees nothing," and "the sun is not visible."

Map skills - Map skills and higher-order thinking It used to be a lot of work to make a map. Before computers, maps had to be meticulously drawn by hand, their grids and outlines relying on complicated pencil-and-paper calculations. Now, you can download map data from the U.S. Geologic Survey or the Census Bureau, install an application on your laptop, and start cranking out maps of anything and everything. Maps are everywhere on the web. Mission MapQuest: Create your own Google Maps Online Scavenger Hunt! I coded the Mission MapQuest Generator to allow students and teachers to to create their own online ‘treasure hunt’ challenges! You simply create as many questions (clues) and answers (locations) as you like, and students are challenged to collect the ‘coins’ hidden in each of these secret locations in the time available. These coins can be placed at whatever altitude you like – so the location could be as broad as an entire country, or as narrow as a single street! Any games created can be saved and shared – there’s even a leaderboard for each game created! Mission MapQuest Sample Game: IGCSE Modern World History Revision
