To help students understand how humans are situated in the natural world, these maps show the globes croplands and natural landscapes. Naturalistic colors mark eight kinds of land cover: cropland, grassland, desert and semi-desert, tundra, glacier, broadleaf and needleleaf forests, and tropical rainforests. Thematic insets show rainfall, population, and growing seasons, and the U.S. map includes a cross-sectional elevation profile. Boundary lines mark out labeled states or countries, capital and major cities are shown (with populations indicated by type size and symbol size), shaded relief indicates the locations of terrestrial and subsea mountain ranges, and latitude and longitude are delineated. Each map measures 53"hx65"w. The maps come mounted on a heavy-duty metal spring roller with a backboard.
