Cosmic-ray muography is a group of density-imaging techniques based on directional measurements of muon attenuation in liquid or solid media. The foundations of this emerging multidisciplinary research field were already laid in the 1950s-1970s, but the number of applications and research publications has witnessed a constant increase only in the last 15 years. We describe here what is currently happening on different fronts, where we may go next, and what this means for astroparticle physicists.
