Abstract

Strip format maps have been used as an aid in travel throughout recorded history. The evolution of this map format from Roman times to the present is examined with emphasis on the interaction of map form and function. Particular attention is given to the range in abstractness of strip maps when used with different travel modes or applied to different kinds of travel and the relationship of strip map popularity to restrictions on travel at various points in time. The use of strip maps as spatial process descriptions of the environment is also considered in relation to a variety of travel contexts.
