We have different maps for navigating in the physical space, marine maps, road maps, hiking maps, etc. The choice of a map depends on what we want to move, where and by what means. If we travel by car we need a road map, if we travel on foot in a mountain area, we need a hiking map. What is more, we may need several different types of maps, in case of emergency. For example, a simplified road map that shows how to get from one point to another will not help if we make a wrong turn somewhere on the way. We will need a detailed road map to get back to our initial course. Identify applicable sponsor/s here. If no sponsors, delete this text box (sponsors). VI.

Agent-related view suit mostly organizations that strictly define responsibilities for each
