Maps can provide much more than directions. They have the capability to add analysis and understanding to common facts and figures because 80 percent of all information is related to a geographic location.
Illustrating your essay, blog, or other project with a map will bring an entirely new dimension to it. Maps reveal information and relationships between seemingly unrelated data that are not readily apparent in a spreadsheet.
Some university professors indicate that they remember fewer than 10 percent of their former students. Including a map demonstrates your creative ability and can bring you greater recognition.
