Only in the last hundred years have we been able to accurately image and map large portions of the universe. We are almost to the level of having a good picture of the 'shape' of the universe and the total-scale pattern of the distribution of matter and galaxies. It's good to have a sense of orientation in one's environment. We all have varyingly accurate mental-maps of our world, but most people don't have a clear idea of the larger patterns happening at scales larger than the solar-system. Today's data visualization technology makes it easy for anyone to see what our position is in the galaxy or even in the total universe.
