Maps mean different things to different people.  So what is a map?

My definition is simple: a map is an answer to a question.

There are three basic kinds of maps that answer three basic types of questions:

The Location map answers the question, “Where am I?”The Navigation map answers the question, “How do I get there?”The Spatial Relationships map answers the question “How are these things related?”

Esri Story Map Treasure Hunt

Esri Story Map Treasure Hunt | Open Geographic Information Systems | Scoop.it

Although these were designed specifically for GIS day during Geography Awareness Week, these 2 excellent map-based treasure hunts from ESRI are great any time of year.  The answer to the question will only pop up in you are zoomed in the the right region (SHIFT + Make a box = Zoom to area).  These links will take you to the World Cities quiz and also to the Mountains quiz.
