Step 2: Refold a pre-folded map

There's also an art to refolding a pre-folded map. Here are some tips to get a map folded away neat and flat for easy storage.

  • Always keep an eye out for the opening section of map--the section that has the title, price, publishing information, etc. Any fold you make should not bury that section from view. As soon as you make any fold that folds that section away, then undo the fold you just did, and look for another option.
  • Look at the map--there are only two kinds of folds, those that go lengthwise, and those that go across the width. In most maps, you fold up all the folds going one way (say, lengthwise) before you start folding it the other way. If you can't remember which way goes first, try doing all the lengthwise folds, and see what happens. If you lose sight of the title section of the map, you know you've made an error and should try it the other way.
