Each thematic desk map includes extensive labeling of political boundaries and physical features. Shaded relief allows you to easily identify elevation in each region. All laminated desk maps are two-sided and measure 17" x 11". The first side features cities, capitals, counties, bordering states, and waterways. Also included on side one is an elevation profile, satellite locater map, places of interest, and historic map. The opposing side duplicates the first, only it does not feature any labels (perfect for classroom exercises) and includes an ethnic diversity pie chart, historical timeline, and thematic inset maps of: population, state regions, transportation, and land use.
