Maps for the Modern World
For centuries, maps were basically the largest source of valuable information in print.
Hello from Melbourne Map Central. Maps will always be crucial to our modern lives. The age of digital is seeing a big change in the way we rely on maps, it’s changed the way we use maps and now allows us to interact with maps like never before. We can only imagine what things would be like if maps had always been so readily available.
We probably would've circumnavigated the globe 1000s of years earlier. Even with all the technology apps available in smartphones and tablets, maps still play a big role in finding our way around town. In Melbourne there’s a need for a vast array of maps for bush walkers, surveyors, maritime enthusiasts and even pilots.
