World travel map collectors have long known how nice it is to sit in the comfort of your own home and gaze at the wide world without having to get out of their easy chairs. A world map is a wonderful gift or thing to dream over whether you are a traveler or a dreamer. Everyone has had the experience of first realizing that a map wasnt just a picture or illustration but an actual representation of the wide world. In terms of childhood fantasies, many an explorer, vagabond, or traveler got their start by gazing at the maps which came each month in the National Geographic magazine. For those who are actually on the road, a map can be a priceless item to have in their possession. The best maps offer insights and information about the places that travelers visit such as major sights to see, things of interest, and even restaurants that are worth eating at.
Maps need to be kept in pristine condition so they will last for many years, and also improves the shading and contrast of a map. To add to this, a laminated map is very much needed if it will be in contact by many people, such as offices, especially delivery services where maps are vital for day-to-day business. Pin-pointing routes and notes are important especially for traveling to many locations around the country. If you are using a map specifically for navigation purposes rather than for decor, a laminated map will allow you to chart you route with a non-permanent pen, and you can simply wipe the map clean afterwards. There is no doubt that by laminating a map you ensure the survival of the map, and keep it looking brand new and importantly clean. Nobody likes the hassle of replacing a map whenever it gets torn or looks old, therefore the best and more cost efficient way of strengthening a map and keep it long lasting is by lamination.
Chennai, the capital of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu, presents an outstanding blend of traditionalism and modernity. It is regarded as the cultural hub of South India and the Detroit of India, both. Ancient temples, long traditions of music, arts and dance, and age-old customs make it the foremost place in South India to understand the regional culture. Modernity, on the other hand, is reflected in its being a major IT hub in the country and the choicest city for the automakers to build their main manufacturing units. The tall skyscrapers and contemporary buildings will convince you of the same. The fourth most populous metropolitan area in India, Chennai is only the third, after Mumbai and Delhi, in the number of expatriates in the country. Definitely the most sought-after city in South India, it has been ranked as the only city in South Asia to go around the world by a leading international journal.
Conformal projection: These projections maintain angular relationships and show accurate shapes while covering small areas. Such maps are useful for navigational or meteorological purposes where angular relationships are important. Equidistant projection: Maps that maintain accurate distances along given lines or from the center of the projection are based on this principle of equidistant projection. Such maps are used for navigation and for radio and seismic mapping. The Equirectangular projection and the Equidistant Conic projection are two examples of this category. Azimuthal (or zenithal) projection: A projection that maintains accurate angular relationships and directions from a given central point use this projection. Maps for aeronautical purposes use this principle. The Lambert Azimuthal Equal-Area projection and the Gnomonic projection are examples of how azimuthal projection is used for map making.
Internal cross links between lower level keywords are less common in mind maps and concept maps than they are in association maps, with the branching tree structure tending to take precedence. With concept and mind maps, the relationship of each word to the overarching theme remains paramount. In association maps, however, the link becomes the key, and, as stated, the process of deciding which type of link joins keywords together is a valuable part of ascertaining correct understanding. If you cant link two keywords effectively, you havent understood how they are related to one another! This pairing and linking process allows a jigsaw like approach to the development of the knowledge map, and enables a student always to be working from a point of understanding. Most interestingly, when used to develop a map for a new topic where one is not an expert, it is possible to identify the high level terms which will take precendence at the top of a concept map once an association map has been developed. This is because they are the ones with the most linkages. Development of an association map therefore gives a useful mechanism for allowing students to take on the expert role and develop their own concept maps, even when they are not fully confident in a subject. Drawing any of the three types of maps involves much more active learning than just using ready produced ones in my experience so this is a definite bonus. In summary, all mapping techniques provide a powerful method for organising key ideas within a topic or sub-topic. Mind mapping allows colourful creativity, concept mapping provides the confidence of professional correctness, and association mapping always lets you get started somewhere, but I have a sneaky suspicion, that the real power of visual mapping is the process your brain goes through when you develop those non-verbal links for yourself, so get a pencil and get started!
This conveys to the visitor a sense of belonging, a sense of direction, that your business is located in the West or East or North or South. In all probability he will remember the general location and what your business ddeals with, better than the words of the address. We humans have a way with pictures. Now the question comes, how to get the map and then how to edit it as suited to your requirements. There are many mapping sites which provide you with outline maps at low costs. You can visit them and buy these fully editable maps and feed your specific information and use it in your website. But what you need is a small country outline map, why pay $50 or more to an online mapping site for it. Yes you are right. A country outline map should be available for $20 or may be $10 or even free. So how do you create a free map for your site. Just go over to Google Earth or Google Map, display your countrys full extent, save the screen as image. Now use Adobe Illustrator or Macromedia Freehand to vectorise the outline. You got your vector country outline map. Add the relevant information and use it the way you want. All simple maps can be easily created by this method but for big and complicated maps you need cartographers or map makers. All maps can not be produced by just drawing lines, you need GIS exports, some re-specifications, may be some adjustments and a pleasing design which conforms to the use of the map. No wonder, map making is a lovely amalgamation of art and science.
