This question makes sense to an english speaker indeed, who can "map" a "map".
Apart from the point that we do not know many bisyllabilic verbs in klingon, we must see the translation for {pu'jIn} like a real noun. In german, a map is called "Landkarte" or "Stadtplan", which is literally "land-card" and "city-plan".

So using {pu'jIn} as a verb sounds to me like using refrigerator as a verb.
