US state maps from Rand McNally, the country’s leading publisher of road maps and street plans, available in two formats: double-sided Easy-to-Read maps with numerous enlargements for cities and/or most visited areas, and laminated Easy-to-Fold maps in a more handy format but with smaller print.
For clarity of road information the maps present the road network on a plain background, with no or little topographic detail. Driving distances are indicated on all principal highways and on many local routes. National or state parks and other protected areas, Indian Reservations and restricted entry military zones are highlighted and symbols indicate campsites, rest areas, various places of interest, etc. Each map shows local administrative boundaries with names of the counties, is indexed and gives geographical coordinates as margin ticks usually at 1° intervals.
EASY-TO-READ maps: the state is divided between the two sides of the map and has place names in larger print size than found on other similar maps. Each title also includes several enlargements for main urban areas and/or popular destinations such as national parks, as listed in the map’s individual description, plus a distance table and a mileage/driving times map of the state.
EASY-TO-FOLD maps: laminated and waterproof versions, allowing you to mark your route and then wipe the surface clean for further use, with the states shown at a much reduced scale to fit onto a more compact size, double-sided map. Mapping is a described above, but with some smaller towns and local roads not shown. Enlargements follow the Easy-to-Read versions, but again with less detail shown on them, and those covering smaller locations are not included. Print size is noticeably smaller.
