World Geography, Cartography and Mapping Skills for Transportation

In a world of computers, cell phones and smart devices, bringing out an atlas seems archaic. In fact, I'm sure some members of the younger generations aren't even sure what an Atlas is! (Re: atlas, from National Geographic Society)

Learning about geography and teaching kids the basics of mapping skills is very important. Developing spatial reasoning is a fundamental building block to all different kids of interpretation skills that will be used all your life.

Everyday we travel from point A to point B through transportation such as cars, buses, trains, plans and even walking. If you were forced to use a map for your travel, would you be able to do it? What if you stranded in the middle of nowhere hiking in the woods? Could you find your way home?

Below you will find a selection of resources to help you build your geography knowledge and test your mapping skills. Make sure you view the cartographic collections of old maps to see how things have changed over the years!
