Why Mapboard? Why Maps?

Why maps?

Maps and globes are the crucial tools for studying geography and other social sciences. Maps are more versatile because they are portable, can be easily replicated and customized.
They help us to visualize, memorize and connect with our studies better.

Why draw them?

You may have a hundred maps in atlases and your books (or your devices). But one map drawn works a hundred times better than one you refer casually. When it come to inspiring curiosity and enhancing your learning experience, their effects are nothing short of miraculous.  Let's say you are studying the Revolt of 1857 in India. When you just read Lucknow, Kanpur, Awadh, Jhansi, Arrah, they'd be some names. But, when you mark them on a blank map of India, you'll get curious and new questions with many a 'why' and 'how' will arise. And answers to them would be truly enlightening.
Also, drawing maps yourself is a tried and tested method for memorizing your subject matters better.
