1. Mental Map

Mental maps are our minds way of orienting ourselves in our world. These are the maps in our brains that we use to navigate from day to day. We can have mental maps of our neighborhoods, cities, and even of the world. This map shows someone's mental map of their community. One can see by this map not the absolute distance of places, but the perceived distances and the mode of transportation taken to reach each of the locations.
