It's about much more than those maps that tell us how to get from Point A to Point B. It's about politics and faith and the values we hold. It's about human relations, social justice, peace, budgets, and environmental concerns, because the maps we create and use influence (sometimes subtly, sometimes directly) all of these things. It's about becoming aware of how we shape and use maps, and how they in turn shape us. Ultimately, it's about becoming aware of the "meaning" behind the maps we use so we can reflect on and begin to create the kind of world we want.
