I’m going to discuss two maps together. These maps are a curious, uh, graphic, which doesn’t represent any clear geography, but does represent an amalgam of some of the principal features to be found around the world, whether those features were lakes, rivers, mountains, or the like. And what is kind of nice about them is that they bring all the largest mountains together, for example, and you can see visually, uh, which are the tallest and which are the almost-tallest, and so on. So it’s a- it’s a nice comparative graphic, one that gives you some appreciation of how the various features of the world, uh, relate to one another.
