An Online Guide to Maps and Map Skills
Maps represent the Earth’s surface, or a part of it in two- or three-dimensional form. Maps give information about a place, such as its location relative to other places on the Earth’s surface, its distance from other places, and its size. There are many different types of maps, including political maps, topographic maps, physical maps, climate maps, thematic maps, and road maps. The information each kind of map depicts depends on its use: a map of a subway system shows different subway lines and major streets, but does not show mountain ranges or average rainfall because that information does not help the map user decide which subway line to take to reach their destination.
