The Expedition Map is accessed via the cn_LT sub-menu, then selecting “Overworld”.

You will need to have built an Exploration Centre or an ARK Launcher to send out ships to explore. These are both located in the “Ships & Vehicles” build menu.

There will be numerous points of interest on the map, ranging from supplying outposts to alien encounters. Of note is the rescue mission titled “Stranded Explorer” – visit 25 of these for:

On the missions Sandy Gulch or Valley of Death you can earn:

Finally, as your ships travel across the map, the fog will be removed. If you remove 95% on a single mission's map, you will unlock:

You can select multiple waypoints on the map so they don't need to be done one at a time. If you have multiple ships, they can be selected via cn_LT.

Note that some missions, specifically the alien encounters, can damage your ship or injure your crew. I don't believe they can be destroyed though. An upgraded ship will help (done at the Research Centre from memory) but you may have to return to the colony to fix the problem, so keep an eye on your ships (you should get a message on the main screen anyway).

You could grind this out on a single mission but it will count across multiples. If you actively set exploration points as you play, this will unlock before the end of the game. Indeed some mission objectives are tied to the Expedition Map during the later missions. You could even set a series of multiple points, then save the game and let it run. Once done, reload the save and keep going over and over until it unlocks. Not too bad at all!
