The “map box” is a compact (250 × 250 x l0mm, which expand to 1000 × 1000 × 10mm when opened) display system for computerized maps of a world. Scale may be adjusted. Most inhabited planets have mapclips (diskettes until tech level 13, holocrystals at higher levels) available for Cr150. When not available, two orbital sweeps of the world are required to obtain the necessary photographs to construct a map chip. Blank mapclips are available for Cr30.
