  2. 2. DEFINITION: A map is a “representationof the surface of the earth orsome part of it…”
  3. 3. KINDS OF MAPS
  4. 4. PHYSICAL MAP EXAMPLE:combines in a single projection data like altitude, temperature, rainfall, precipitation, vegetation, and soil.
  5. 5. RELIEF MAP EXAMPLE:has three dimensional representations and show contours of the physical data of the earth or part of the earth.
  6. 6. COMMERCIAL OR ECONOMIC MAPAlso called  EXAMPLE: product or industrial map since they show land areas in relation to the economy
  7. 7. POLITICAL MAP Gives detailed  EXAMPLE: information about country, provinces, cities and towns, roads and highways. Oceans, rivers and lakes are the main features of most political maps.

  14. 14. ADVANTAGES ANDDISADVANTAGES
  15. 15. ADVANTAGES: The students can visualize the approximate (if not the exact) location of a place/thing. It will be easy for the students to trace the location of a certain place/thing. It may help the students to analyze the given problem. It will give techniques and ways on how to solve the problem easily.
  16. 16. DISADVANTAGES:Itwill interrupt the mind of the novice students especially those who didn’t know how to make use of it.The students may be focusing on the map itself.
