  • Maps are very useful for us for many reasons. Based on these, orientation is achieved, to guide someone to an unknown place, to identify his position in a geographical area, to plan large technical projects etc. Through the centuries maps have been emerged to the main means of communication and transmission of geographic information. They always create a picture of an “objective” presentation of the reality and of phenomena, a fact that has resulted in developing strong links between man and maps.

    All the pupils, regardless their age, will be able to acquire at least to a minimum familiarity with the simple concepts of maps.
