On Saturday January 19th, 2008, braving 0 degree weather, the geography club visited the Maps: Finding Our Place in the World exhibit at the Field Museum in Chicago. The exhibit collected together in one place many of the most famous and most important maps in the history of cartography include maps by Ptolemy, Al-Idrisi, Mercator, and Thomas Jefferson.
