Map Maker Interactive
Imagine that you are a mapmaker for the king and queen of Spain. You really want to sail across the sea to explore and chart the lands you would find there, but the king and queen value your service too much. They will not allow you to go. Many of your friends go. Some you never see again, but some come back with wonderful stories. One day, one of your friends returns with a description of the place he visited. He hands you the written description of the place and asks you to make a map of the place.
