Atlas, Map, Globe
Do you know the difference between an atlas, a map and a globe?
A map usually is a plan of an area or region or town.
We can get street maps that can help us find a way around a city or town.
We can get regional maps which show us on a larger scale and area.
Maps can cover whole countries, continents or even the world.
Without detailed maps, it would be difficult to find our way around or to a new area.
An atlas is a book of maps.
Usually an atlas will contain maps of each region and every country of the world.
Also an atlas may give us pictorial images of the political, demographic and environmental points of the areas covered.
Old maps and atlases were hand drawn by explorers and city planers.
Today these maps maybe drawn by computers using the latest satellite technology.
In the west, almost every home will contain an atlas.
A globe is a map of the world as it really looks.
An atlas is two dimensional and flat.
A globe is just like the earth, round and able to spin.
