Map Walk
For those who are unfamiliar with the Map Walk, it is an event that provides a chance for students to “walk” across Africa, Asia, and Europe as presented through large tactical pilotage charts, each at a scale of 1:500,000 (eight miles to the inch) and measuring approx. 3½ x 5 feet. They show cities and towns, principal roads, railroads, pipelines, power lines, and distinctive landmarks.  The terrain representation includes spot elevations, contours, elevation tints, and stream-drainage patterns. These laminated charts are spread over the floor in the Student Center ballroom so that students can walk over them and gain a better sense of the geographical layout of the European and non-Western world.  Cleveland State University currently owns more than 500 of these charts, covering the entire Middle East as well as the majority of Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe. In the past, the Map Walk has been held annually in Student Center and regularly attracts 150-300 students, faculty, staff, and community members. "Tours" are offered at 10:15 am, 11:25 am, and 1:30 pm.
