Getting to know about the environment through first hand field visits and explorative travel is more important than using modern instruments and communicating devices to survey, draw, build, replicate maps. Through maps one can see how big the planet is and how resourceful it is.

The strategy of bringing the geo-awareness is a mix of physical exploration, survey and deploying modern digital instruments and software tools to visualize, design and interpret maps that make more sense from several different aspects such as cultural, physical, hydrological, coastal, weather, economic, social etc…
