It is not down in any map; true places never are

The orientation of a map is the relationship between the directions on the map and the corresponding compass directions in reality. The word « orient » is derived from Latin oriens, meaning East.In the Middle Ages many maps, including the T and O maps, were drawn with East at the top (meaning that the direction « up » on the map corresponds to East on the compass). Today, the most common – but far from universal – cartographic convention is that North is at the top of a map.
