  5. Cartographics & Exploration
The Department of Cartographics & Exploration uncovers the locations of all of the wonders of the galaxy, both natural and intelligently made. Our researchers travel the vasts reaches of space, and plains of distant worlds, on the lookout for anything unusual and noteworthy. Our catalogs provide an invaluable resource for the other Canonn departments, recording where they might continue their research.

For a chronological view of events and discoveries, visit the Canonn Timeline in the Lore pages.
