🔎 🗺️ When reviewing maps, particularly in the western United States, you can often sense that there's a story behind the map.
The Map Is Not the Territory
How does someone buy a ranch that large?
How did it get put together?
Why is a private tract surrounded by millions of acres of public land?
What's the story?
The map of reality is not reality. Even the best maps are imperfect. That’s because they are reductions of what they represent. If a map were to represent the territory with perfect fidelity, it would no longer be a reduction and thus would no longer be useful to us. A map can also be a snapshot of a point in time, representing something that no longer exists. This is important to keep in mind as we think through problems and make better decisions.Farnam Street
