Roadmaps

Road maps are the most popular type of maps. They show route details such as major and minor highways, places like airports, the location of cities, and other places of interest like parks, monuments, etc. Different colours and schemes are used for clear indication.

Physical maps

Physical maps show the physical landscape properties of a place. They show features like mountains, rivers, lakes, etc. Blue is the colour used to show water bodies. Green indicates lower elevation and brown indicates higher ones. Different shades ranging from orange to brown are used to show different elevation ranges.

Topographic maps

Topographic maps and physical maps are similar in many aspects. The difference is that the former makes use of contour lines instead of colours to show landscape features. The spacing between the lines is varied to display elevation changes. For example, a steep terrain is indicated by lines spaced close together.

The speciality of interactive maps are that along with visual instructions, vocal guidelines are also there which makes it easy for you while driving. The oral instructions are helpful especially if you are travelling alone. Using them, you need not deviate your attention from driving to look at the map.
