What is the map?

The map is a drawing of a country, a region, or even the Earth's surface reduced in size. Maps show features of the landscape, such as hills, roads, rivers, lakes, countries etc. on a flat paper. Maps are usually drawn from above. Maps use different colours and symbols.

The scale is a number on the map that shows how many times smaller your drawing is than real life. A rate of 1:4 means that the drawing is four times smaller than the real thing.
