  1. Mapping Earth

  2. Physical maps • Different colors, lines, tints, shading and spot elevations are used to show the elevation and to differentiate lowlands from the mountains • Colors are used to distinguish landforms and elevations • The features that make up earth`s surface are called landforms • some examples of landforms are plains, plateaus, and plateaus • Some physical maps show elevation

  3. globes • A globe is aspherical representation of the earth • When you look at a globe you can see the way the world looks • Globe categories: terrestrial and celestial

  4. Contour/topographical maps • A topographic map is a type of map characterized by large-scale detail and quantitative representation of relief • usually using contour lines • detailed and accurate graphic representation of cultural and natural features on the ground

  5. Political maps • Designed to show governmental boundaries of countries, states, and counties, the location of major cities • Usually include significant bodies of water • Bright colors are usually used to help you find the borders

  6. Physical features • Plateaus • Seas • Mountains • Oceans • Islands • Rivers • Plains • Lakes • In the earth sciences and geology sub-fields, a landform or physical feature comprises a geomorphological unit, and is largely defined

  7. Deserts • Arid or dry regions that receive less than ten inches of rain per year • Large areas with a lot of bare soil and low vegetation • The world`s deserts cover almost one quarter of the earth`s land surface • Receive little rainfall but when rain does fall the desert experiences a short period of great abundances

  8. Bodies of water • any significant accumulation of water, usually covering the Earth • Some bodies of water are man-made • Include: reservoirs, harbors, oceans, lakes, rivers, ponds, etc. • Some bodies of water collect and move water

  9. Mountains • A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area usually in the form of a peak. • A mountain is generally steeper than a hill • Mountains are formed through tectonic forces or volcanism • Types: Volcanic mountains, dome mountains, Plateau mountains, etc. • Mountains often serve as geographic features that define natural borders of countries
