A map was a diagrammatic representation of the physical galaxy or planets made by cartographers. Maps could display an area of land or sea with its notable features, such as major cities and roads,[source?] as well as, in the case of star maps,[source?] aiding in navigation through space. One such map was devised by Thrawn and Emperor Palpatine, which showed the full extent of the known Unknown Regions and intended for the purpose of providing locations of shelter for the Galactic Empire.
