The Center of the World

In Europe during the Middle Ages most maps were produced within monasteries. They adopted the principle of having Jerusalem in the center of a ‘world’ map. The first known map putting North at the top and South at the bottom is from Korea. It’s known as the Kangnido map and was created in 1402 by an astronomer named Kwon Kun.
