What are political and physical maps?
A political map shows human-created features such as boundaries, cities, highways, roads, and railroads. Physical maps displays the natural features of the earth - the location and names of mountains, rivers, valleys, ocena currents, and deserts. Most common maps and globes are combinations of political and physical maps.
