Mapping the World (Watts Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In ancient times, people knew little about the lands far beyond their own or about Earth. It took the work of explorers, merchants, 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 then-known information about the geography of the world 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.

Synopsis:

Watts Library "TM" spans all subjects, including animals, space, American Indians, U.S. history, geography, cutting-edge sports, and more!<P>It used to take the work of explorers, merchants, and mapmakers to create a single map. But that's all changed thanks to new technology that helps us map the world as we never have before!
