Maps were made long before reading and writing were invented. The earliest map that we know of is a cave painting in the Lascaux caves in France. The painting shows a part of the summer night`s sky 16,500 years ago. Modern astronomers can still understand the night sky shown in the map. A four thousand year old map by theBabylonians is still in existence.Many ancient map-makers thought that the world was flat, but explorers like Magellan in the 15th century sailed around the world and helped to make better maps. Besides, measurements taken by satellites show that our planet is slightly pear-shaped. Satellites have also provided more accurate information and have helped to see and map parts of the world that were little know or never seen by humans before. Satellites have photographed the Amazon rainforest and have shown that the area the size of twenty football pitches is being cut down every minute. Pictures taken from space have also show that one of the world`s largest areas of inland water,the Aral Sea, has been shrinking  very quickly.Modern satellite maps show the effects ot global warming and polllution and help us to understand the world around us better. More and more drivers nowadays rely on satellite navigation in their cars so the traditional road maps may not  be around much longer.
