This article describes the usefulness of wear maps and explains how to construct a proper wear map from scratch and effectively employ such a map to make important design decisions for a particular tribological situation. It discusses three categories of wear-data presentation: numeric data, topographic data, and multidimensional graphical data. The article provides a brief description of the development of different groups of wear maps. It also summarizes the essential components of a wear map.
