Journal of Maps is a peer-reviewed, inter-disciplinary, online journal that aims to provide a forum for researchers to publish maps and spatial diagrams. In its broadest sense, Journal of Maps ( JoM ) is concerned with social and physical processes that take place on a geographical scale. Topics covered as a broad as footfall in retail marketing, the spread of bird flu or location of geological faults, but the common theme is the use of maps or spatial diagrams to advance understanding.
JoM is intentionally multi-disciplinary and wants to draw upon, and present, work from all subject areas. Not only has this built an increasing archive of mapped data for future researchers to draw upon, but also fosters inter-disciplinary contexts.

The Main Map presented in this paper is the result of intensive fieldwork and mapping of 43 rural communities of the Pátzcuaro and Zirahuén basins in central-western Mexico. It shows the presence of handmade-tortilla workshops and considers the natural resources they demand but also their social, economic and cultural significance in the region.
