If your map is big and hard to hold, why not try a Miura Fold!
What is the Miura Fold?
The Miura Fold is a way of folding paper (and other material) into a smaller area, keeping it flat.
It’s described as shape-memory origami because once unfolded it can easily be folded back to its compact shape. It was invented by a Japanese astrophysicist called Koryo Miura.
