|Program Description||Maps gained in importance during the Age of Exploration. European explorers needed maps to follow and created their own as they explored new lands. Some maps became so important that they were copied over and over again. These map copies, or derivatives, were especially useful to travelers and explorers to the New World. John Smith’s map of Virginia was one of these influential maps, because of the importance of the Virginia settlement and the accuracy with which Smith conducted his work.|
