Scale, definitions, borders, elevations etc.


Scale must be shown. City centres, towns, etc. (special signs) are shown. If it is a topographic map, rivers, elevations, top elevation of mountains, etc. are given.

It depends on the type of map.


for example, a physical map might have the meanings of different colors.
