This achievement is obtained by "unlocking" all the map. You'll notice when you first start the game that most of the map is greyed out with "fog". You need to explore the WHOLE map, to make it all visible. Unlike previous GTA games, the map is fully explorable from the start, just the pause menu map needs to be revealed, why I'm not sure, this achievement seems a bit silly.

The easiest way by far is to use an airplane like the crop sprayer, and mentally separate the map into blocks, exploring each with the airplane, setting waypoints as guidelines. All the map needs to be explored, even the coastline edges, until there are no fog patches visible. Just remember to STAY HIGH around mountainous areas, and be careful going over Fort Zancudo, you get an instant wanted level as it's restricted airspace. Remove 95% of the "fog", and the achievement unlocks.

This was one of the first achievements I unlocked on the 360 version, as I enjoy flying round enjoying the view, no cars to crash into! Just get to cruise altitude, let go of the throttle, then just glide the plane around using engine idle, it's really breathtaking in full HD on my 60" plasma!
