Great video about the challenges faced by map makers. making a Globe readable as a flat image is not easy. ‘Tis easier than it was convincing people the world wasn’t flat though.

Makes sense that they’d be different types of maps for different purposes and forms of travel. somewhat related anecdote, towns used to spring up in roughly a days walking distance away from set towns. Some settlement would begin and after some time enough people would move in, set up shop and call it home.
