This book can be viewed as a contemplation of the cartographic response to the widening geographic range and the new modalities of modern travel brought about by the technological and institutional transformations of the age. A number of considerations help us to characterize the level and nature of map use by travelers, including the role of the traveler in navigation, and the nature, speed, and range of the conveyance involved. This introductory chapter discusses mapping and navigation, the rise of travel mapping, and maps and the history of travel. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
