(c) The scale of a map is the ratio between the actual distance on the ground andthe distance shown on the map.

(d) A globe is useful when we want to study the Earth as a whole. But, when wewant to study only a part of the Earth, it is of little help. For this purpose, we usemaps. A map can represent the entire Earth’s surface or a part of it.

Maps can be used to show the physical features of the Earth (mountains, plains,oceans, rivers, etc.), the political divisions of the Earth (countries, states, cities,villages, etc.), and certain specific information (roads, rainfall, forests, industries,etc.)

(e)

 Map Plan A map is a representation or a drawing of the Earth’s surface or a part of it drawn on a flat surface according to a scale. A plan is a drawing of a small area on a large scale. It can be used for representing large areas like continents or countries (large scale maps), and also for representing a small area like a village or a town (small scale maps). It is used for representing those things that cannot be represented in a map. For example, the length and the breadth of a room cannot be shown in a map. For this purpose, a plan is used.

(f) A large scale map provides detailed information.

(g)As it is not possible to draw on a map the actual shape and size of differentfeatures (e.g., buildings, roads, bridges), they are shown by using certain standardletters, shades, colours, pictures and lines. These symbols give a lot of information ina little space. Using these symbols, maps can be drawn easily. The use of symbolsmakes maps simple to read.
