maps are also distinct for the global knowledge required to construct them. A meaningful map of the world could not be constructed before the European Renaissance because less than half of the earth's coastlines, let alone its interior regions, were known to any culture. New knowledge of the earth's surface has been accumulating ever since and continues to this day. Maps of the world generally focus either on political features or on physical features. Political maps emphasize territorial boundaries and human settlement. Physical maps show geographic features such as mountains, soil type or land use. Geological maps show not only the surface, but characteristics of the underlying rock, fault lines, and subsurface structures. Choropleth maps use color hue and intensity to contrast differences between regions, such as demographic or economic statistics.

London Listeni London/ˈlʌndən/ is the capital and most populous city of England and the United Kingdom.[3][4] Standing on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who named it Londinium.[5] London’s ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its 1.12-square-mile (2.9 km2) medieval boundaries and in 2011 had a resident population of 7,375, making it the smallest city in England. Since at least the 19th century, the term London has also referred to the metropolis developed around this core.[6] The bulk of this conurbation forms Greater London,[7][8][note 1] a region of England governed by the Mayor of London and the London Assembly.[9][note 2] The conurbation also covers two English counties: the City of London and the county of Greater London.[10]

London is a leading global city,[11][12] with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism, and transport all contributing to its prominence.[13][14][15][16] It is one of the world’s leading financial centres[17][18][19] and has the fifth-or sixth-largest metropolitan area GDP in the world depending on measurement.[note 3][20][21] London is a world cultural capital.[22][23][24][25] It is the world’s most-visited city as measured by international arrivals[26] and has the world’s largest city airport system measured by passenger traffic.[27] London is the world’s leading investment destination,[28][29][30] hosting more international retailers[31][32] and ultra high-net-worth individuals[33][34] than any other city. London’s 43 universities form the largest concentration of higher education institutes in Europe.[35] In 2012, London became the first city to host the modern Summer Olympic Games three times
