As Mormon edited the Book of Mormon, he must have had a map in his mind of the places and physical features that were the setting for the events described in that book. Mormon's Map attempts to reconstruct that mental map by using information carefully gleaned from the text. The resulting theoretical model can be applied to the Book of Mormon to shed new light on the influence of geography on Nephite history, increase our understanding of the book and its characters, and make events and places more concrete in our minds.
