Nobody truly knows the Grand Canyon—its sheer scale prevents us from ever seeing it fully, so how do we map such vast terrain? Maps rescale geography, allowing us to conceptualize space beyond the distances and depths perceived by our senses. Matthew Toro, Director of Maps, Imagery, and Geospatial Services at ASU Library leads a fast-paced overview of mapping the Grand Canyon, from the first time it was labeled on a map in 1777 to the creation of an iconic map in 1978 that has come to define the region.
