The main map shows elements of physical geography, such as contour lines, the river system, and summits, as well as elements of political geography, such as large cities, smaller localities, Aboriginal communities, roads, railways, ferries, and airports, all identified with a set of symbols. Some tourist sites are indicated, as well as surrounding areas.
