Just for enjoyment, Mapping

I see mapping as an ample concept by which some "reality" is understood some way. In such sense, functions, operators, closed form formulas, charts are in my view some kind of mapping, and the world we know is mapped in our mind. Coming from the technical field, I am specially interested in that many useful transformations be easily made and understood to represent some reality that in the ordinary field is cumbersome to deal with.
