One of the titles in a series of indexed regional maps with attractive presentation of China’s varied topography and names of main towns in both alphabets. Bold altitude colouring, with spot heights and names of mountain ranges and other geographical features, provides a good picture of the terrain. The maps show various categories of roads including selected tracks, with intermediate driving distances marked on many routes. Railways, shipping and ferry lines, and airports are also shown. Province boundaries are highlighted and national parks are indicated. Symbols depict landmarks and features such as tombs, monasteries, churches, temples, ruins, UNESCO sites, and other places of interest. Names of main towns are also given in Chinese script. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 1° intervals. Multilingual legend includes English. Each title has an index on the reverse.
In this title: one of the two versions covering Tibet. Both maps carry the same information, with the geographical version following the same presentation as the other maps in this series (i.e. with altitude colouring), whilst the road edition has only relief shading which makes all the place names stand out better against a lighter background. Most place names are also shown in local versions, with the Tibetan language included in the multilingual legend. The maps extend south to include the whole of Nepal and Bhutan.
