Scraping (or wall hugging) is an action carried out for the Cartographer title, where playable characters face the outermost map wall and walk along it, attempting to uncover as much of the surrounding map as possible. Since there is rarely any other reason to walk right up to the edge of a map, this practice can add significantly to the player's total exploration, and it is usually required for full completion of a Cartographer title, given the low margin for error in reaching 100%.
