In chapter 3 of the text book, exercise 3.7 a, at the back of the
chapter. They ask: to give all these functions such as cost
functions etc. of a planar map, but my problem is I don't know what a
planar map is. If any of you can help explain or show what a planar
map is I would appreciat it because a search on google and yahoo
hasn't provided me much except mathematical things, which is useless
to me.
If anyone can please help me email me please at KroaX2@...

ThanX

From the #1 result for the query [planar map] on Google:

"The data type planar_map represents a planar drawing of a planar
graph. A graph is called planar if it can be drawn without edge
crossings."

In other words, take a map, draw a point for the capital of each
region, connect adjacent capitals with lines, and then throw away the
original borders. You now have a graph. If this graph can be drawn
on a flat plane with no lines crossing, it is a planar map.
