Types of Maps – Physical and Political
• Physical maps show the location and the topography, or shape of the Earth’s physical features. A study of an area’s physical features can help explain its historical development
• Political maps shows the boundaries and locations of political units such as countries, states, and cities (often divided by color). A study of a political map gives you a context for the region.
Physical Maps
• Use shading and texture to show general relief (difference in elevation, height, landforms).
• Landforms are physical features such as plains, mountains, plateaus, and valleys.
• Show rivers, streams, lakes and other water forms.
Political Maps
• Many of the items on a political map are human-made, or determined by humans rather than nature.
• Boundaries, capital cities, and roads.
• Might also show physical features such as mountains and rivers.
Examples in the Atlas

Political Maps

Pg. 2-3

Pg. 88

Pg. 228

Physical Maps

Pg. 4-5

Pg. 89

Pg. 229

Activity – After looking at the examples, what three words would you use to describe each type of map?

Thematic Maps – maps that provide a particular kind of information or a single idea

Qualitative Maps – use colors, symbols, lines, or dots to show information related to a specific idea.

Examples in Atlas:Pg. 32-33

Pg. 40-41

• Flow-Line maps – use arrows to show the movement of people, ideas, or physical systems.
• Examples in Atlas:
• Pg. 20-21
• PG. 58-59

Activity: When would you use a qualitative map? A Flow-Line map?

What three words would you use to describe each type of map?
