Product description

What do you see when you look at a map? A bunch of squiggly lines? Or are you the person who can normally be found holding the map upside down (oops)? Then you need this foolproof guide to making sense of maps. Yes, it is possible! OK: maps can be complicated for lots of reasons. They turn a 3D landscape into a flat picture. Confusing, huh? They use symbols, scales, keys and grids. It’s enough to drive anyone crazy. But once you understand them, they’re simple – and this book lets you into some essential secrets for success. One of them, you may be surprised to know, is to start drawing your own maps…

  • Lots of DIY exercises that clarify the mapping process
  • Fun approach using colour photos, drawing activities, quizzes and a crossword
  • Map types include birds eye maps, tourist maps, OS maps and sea maps
  • Simply explains coordinates, grids, contours and other features
