Geography of Continents, Countries and Cities
This map depicts the countries of Asia in bright colors with red borders. The capital city and major cities of each country are shown with different size symbols that indicate their relative population. Thousands of cities are shown. Major highways and important roads are marked as red lines.
Major mountain ranges are shown in shaded relief and labeled by name. Asia is home to the Himalaya Mountain Range, the range that contains many of the world's tallest peaks. Many important inland lakes are in Asia, including Lake Baikal in Siberia. It is the largest lake in the world on the basis of volume.
The map represents the continent of Asia at a 1:11,000,000 equatorial scale using a Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection.
Ocean and Freshwater Detail
Unlike many other maps of Asia, this one shows large portions of the Arctic Ocean where Russia claims exclusive economic rights to important energy resources. It also shows the waters of the Northern Sea Route that connects the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans through icy Arctic waters.
The oceans and major seas are shown in a gradient of blue colors that represent different water depths. This allows you to see ocean trenches, mid-ocean ridges and continental shelf areas at a glance. The contested waters of the South China Sea and Sea of Japan are in these shallow water areas where the sovereignty of tiny islands are hotly contested because of the seafloor resources that surround them.
A Great Map for Home Learning
One of the most valuable uses of a map like this is in the home. When you learn about an important event in Asia while watching the news or reading a news website, you can find the location on the map. This will enrich your understanding of the event and your knowledge of Asian geography. This is a great map for those who are home schooling.
