We need many different kinds of reliable maps - in our mind - of the various aspects of the world. For a map to be reliable it should be based on facts.


A fact is something that really exists. It is verifiable meaning that it can be confirmed. Facts can be obtained using objective methods. For example to make a map of the landscape we would use objective methods like to measure distances and using photography from the air. Subjective indicators like personal feelings, interpretations and beliefs would be useless.
