          I am a map freak; I have been a user and developer of maps from before I can remember. Mapping is probably the most important tool that I teach, whatever the subject and aim of the course. In the photographs featured here I am mapping the flow of waters in a Florida river. By its very nature mapping is selective–we pick and choose the features to emphasize what we hope to learn from the process. In today’s post FS Brain Food focuses on the limitations of mapping–we need to remember that all maps of whatever kind are only partial views. Having said that, mapping is still the most powerful cognitive tool for us to develop and nourish.
