I am currently studying Illustration and for my current project I am looking at maps and how they were made etc. I'm struggling to find an answer online because I'm unsure of how to word my question. I'm hoping some of you out there could help me out.
I want to know who/what decided on an area of land to be its shape and size on a map? Some examples: How was it decided one town ends and another begins? How are forests and oceans divided? How was it determined that Brighton ends and Hove starts?
Hopefully these questions make sense as it's starting to hurt my brain!
