What is the purpose of a map of the world?

In a simple , visual way, maps present information about the world. By showing the sizes and shapes of nations, locations of features, and distances between places, they teach about the world. Maps can show distributions of things, such as settlement patterns, across the Earth.

A world map is a map of most or all of the Earth's surface. World maps must deal with the problem of projection because of their scale. By necessity, maps rendered in two dimensions distort the display of the earth's three-dimensional surface. Whilst this is true of any map, in a world map, these distortions reach extremes. To present world maps that address various technical and aesthetic objectives, many techniques have been developed. It requires global knowledge of the earth, its oceans, and its continents to chart a world map. It would have been impossible to create an accurate world map from prehistory through the Middle Ages, as less than half of the coastlines of the Earth and only a small fraction of its continental interiors were known to any culture. Knowledge of the Earth's surface accumulated rapidly with exploration that began during the European Renaissance, so that most of the coastlines of the world were mapped by the mid-1700s at least and continental interiors by the 20th century.
