Are you:

Because

Maps have pictorial representations of all the things listed, but are never made of houses, water, trees, and rock.

    $\begingroup$ @user477343 Well, I do like math a lot, but I don't really have a lot of knowledge on conjectures. I think they are just unproven mathematical theories. :D $\endgroup$ – Kevin L Sep 28 '18 at 12:02

What am I?

A globe?

It fits the description perfectly.
