Consider using one of the WWW search engines if you are looking for a specific type of map or reference. The maps which are listed here have been selected because they are thought to be reasonably useful and/or interesting. They are categorized by geographical region although there are a couple of thematic categories such as Interactive Maps which both highlights the potential of the WWW and are also fun to use. Note that there is some overlap in geographic coverage between these categories. The emphasis is on displayable maps (e.g. images) rather than digital cartographic (GIS) and satellite data which can be found in the separate compilation Geodata Information Sources .

Unit Two: Studying Africa through the Social Studies
Module Six: The Geography of Africa
Teacher's Edition Introduction to Module Six: Africa and Its Geography PURPOSE:
Geography is a subject that "bridges" the natural sciences and the social sciences (which in school we refer to as the social studies) in the study of the physical, or natural, and human dimensions of the world. Geography is the study of the interconnection between people, places, and the environment. Geographers have identified five important themes in the study of geography. This lesson will introduce these themes with special reference to the study of the geography of Africa. 1. Location and spatial relations: The surface of our world, land and water, mountains and plains, oceans and lakes, is a defined space called earth. Earth can be divided into smaller spaces defined as continents, or divided further still into political units that are called countries, states, or even cities and villages. All human beings live, work, and play at specific locations that are called districts, villages, cities, countries, and continents. Geographers believe that every place where people live, work, play, etc. is shaped by that place's location in relationship to other places. Geographers use the term spatial relations when they study the impact of location on human activities.
