Map is a key-value collection, where you store values under particular keys and can retrieve them later by key.

mapOf() creates an immutable Map. The parameters to mapOf() are Pair objects. The simplest way to create a Pair is to separate the paired values by to. The first element of the Pair is used as the key; the second element is the value saved to the Map under that key.
