A map is a visual representation of an area, often showing physical features, political boundaries, and transportation routes. A road map showcases major and minor highways, as well as cities, airports, and other points of interest. A political map shows national, state, and local boundaries, while a topographic map shows physical features such as rivers and mountain ranges. The study and practice of making maps is known as cartography.
