Maps are more than mere lines on paper drawn to show boundaries and the basic layout of towns, provinces, mountains and seas — they outline the fortunes and histories of sovereign nations.
Maps are powerful tools that tell us our place in the world and where we are headed. Explore the evolution of Philippine maps, from ancient times to the present, and trace the economic and political importance of the Philippine’s strategic geography to the rest of the world.
