How To Memorize A Map - Piece By Piece

To adequately memorize a map, try doing it in small chunks

One of the reasons why it is hard to memorize maps is because maps can be very overwhelming especially if the map is large and very detailed. The first thing that you need to do therefore is to tackle the map piece by piece. You do not need to memorize the whole map all at once. For example, you can start memorizing parts that you are already familiar with and are therefore much easier to memorize before you move on to much difficult parts of the map. The point is not to get yourself overwhelmed with the grandness of the map.
