“Here at Maps.com, we love to celebrate maps.
What better way to celebrate than to give Maps their own day!”
– JOHN GLANVILLE, MAPS.COM CEO

Maps.com is excited to inaugurate International Map Day on February 3rd. Why this date? February 3rd is Ferdinand Magellan’s birthday, and he is the explorer credited with the first circumnavigation of the Earth, and therefore bringing the world a complete world map!

Maps.com’s founding name was Magellan Geographix, named for Ferdinand Magellan too! So we want to celebrate this explorer, and his contribution to history and to learning and discovery with maps!

EXPLORATION & ADVENTURE
THE LEGACY OF FERDINAND MAGELLAN
Today, Portuguese sailor and navigator Ferdinand Magellan is considered to be the first person to circle, or circumnavigate, Earth. At the time, however, the sponsor of his voyage, King Charles I of Spain, was driven more by commerce than by interest in navigation or exploration.
