Map
A map is a representation, usually on a flat (planar) surface, of a region of the earth or heavens. Within a spatial database, an assembly of digital spatial features that represent a set of real-world features and the geographic relationships between them. This representation may exits digitally, manually (i.e. on paper), or in the human mind.


Menu
On computers, menus provide options for command input by computer users rather than by typing instructions. Menus come in many forms including permanent screen menu squares, pull-downs, popups, sliders, icons, cursor, picklists, dialog and toolbar buttons, as well as printed tablet menus and cursor buttons on digitizing (mouse) devices.


Metadata
This term refers to data about data. This information typically includes such information as the data's source, accuracy, data type, projection, date of origination and other general descriptions.
