"Not only is it easy to lie with maps, but it's essential. To portray meaningful relationships for a complex three-dimensional world on a flat sheet of paper or a screen, a map must distort reality. (...) To avoid hiding critical information in a fog of detail, a map must offer a selective, incomplete view of reality. There is no escape from the cartographic paradox: to present a useful and truthful picture, an accurate map must tell white lies.." M. Monmonier, 2018, How to Lie with Maps, The University of Chicago Press
Maps are an integral part of geology. GIS systems today allow us to design various maps at multiple scales.
