On maps showing greater detail, the grid is often given numbers and letters. The boxes made by the grid may be called A, B, C, and so on across the top of the map, and 1, 2, 3, and so on across the left side. In the map’s index, a park’s location might be given as B4. The user finds the park by looking in the box where column B and row 4 cross.

A map is a symbolic representation of selected characteristics of a place, usually drawn on a flat surface. Maps present information about the world in a simple, visual way. They teach about the world by showing sizes and shapes of countries, locations of features, and distances between places. Maps can show distributions of things over Earth, such as settlement patterns. They can show exact locations of houses and streets in a city neighborhood.

Mapmakers, called cartographers, create maps for many different purposes. Vacationers use road maps to plot routes for their trips. Meteorologists—scientists who study weather—use weather maps to prepare forecasts. City planners decide where to put hospitals and parks with the help of maps that show land features and how the land is currently being used.

Some common features of maps include scale, symbols, and grids.
All maps are scale models of reality. A map’s scale indicates the relationship between the distances on the map and the actual distances on Earth. This relationship can be expressed by a graphic scale, a verbal scale, or a representative fraction.

The most common type of graphic scale looks like a ruler. Also called a bar scale, it is simply a horizontal line marked off in miles, kilometers, or some other unit measuring distance

The verbal scale is a sentence that relates distance on the map to distance on Earth. For example, a verbal scale might say, “one centimeter represents one kilometer” or “one inch represents eight miles.”

The representative fraction does not have specific units. It is shown as a fraction or ratio—for example, 1/1,000,000 or 1:1,000,000. This means that any given unit of measure on the map is equal to one million of that unit on Earth. So, 1 centimeter on the map represents 1,000,000 centimeters on Earth, or 10 kilometers. One inch on the map represents 1,000,000 inches on Earth, or a little less than 16 miles.

The size of the area covered helps determine the scale of a map. A map that shows an area in great detail, such as a street map of a neighborhood, is called a large-scale map because objects on the map are relatively large. A map of a larger area, such as a continent or the world, is called a small-scale map because objects on the map are relatively small.

Today, maps are often computerized. Many computerized maps allow the viewer to zoom in and out, changing the scale of the map. A person may begin by looking at the map of an entire city that only shows major roads and then zoom in so that every street in a neighborhood is visible.


Cartographers use symbols to represent geographic features. For example, black dots represent cities, circled stars represent capital cities, and different sorts of lines represent boundaries, roads, highways, and rivers. Colors are often used as symbols. Green is often used for forests, tan for deserts, and blue for water. A map usually has a legend, or key, that gives the scale of the map and explains what the various symbols represent.

Some maps show relief, or changes in elevation. A common way to show relief is contour lines, also called topographic lines. These are lines that connect points that have equal elevation. If a map shows a large enough area, contour lines form circles.

A group of contour line circles inside one another indicates a change in elevation. As elevation increases, these contour line circles indicate a hill. As elevation decreases, contour line circles indicate a depression in the earth, such as a basin.


Many maps include a grid pattern, or a series of crossing lines that create squares or rectangles. The grid helps people locate places on the map. On small-scale maps, the grid is often made up of latitude and longitude lines. Latitude lines run east-west around the globe, parallel to the Equator, an imaginary line that circles the middle of Earth. Longitude lines run north-south, from pole to pole. Latitude and longitude lines are numbered. The intersection of latitude and longitude lines, called coordinates, identify the exact location of a place.

On maps showing greater detail, the grid is often given numbers and letters. The boxes made by the grid may be called A, B, C, and so on across the top of the map, and 1, 2, 3, and so on across the left side. In the map’s index, a park’s location might be given as B4. The user finds the park by looking in the box where column B and row 4 cross.

Other Map Features: DOGSTAILS

Along with scale, symbols, and grids, other features appear regularly on maps. A good way to remember these features is DOGSTAILS: date, orientation, grid, scale, title, author, index, legend, and sources.

Title, date, author, and sources usually appear on the map though not always together. The map’s title tells what the map is about, revealing the map’s purpose and content. For example, a map might be titled “Political Map of the World” or “Battle of Gettysburg, 1863.”

“Date” refers to either the time the map was made or the date relevant to the information on the map. A map of areas threatened by a wildfire, for instance, would have a date, and perhaps even a time, to track the progress of the wildfire. A historical map of the ancient Sumerian Empire would have a date range of between 5,000 B.C. and 1,000 B.C.

Noting a map’s author is important because the cartographer’s perspective will be reflected in the content. Assessing accuracy and objectivity also requires checking sources. A map’s sources are where the author of the map got his or her information. A map of a school district may list the U.S. Census Bureau, global positioning system (GPS) technology, and the school district’s own records as its sources.

Orientation refers to the presence of a compass rose or simply an arrow indicating directions on the map. If only an arrow is used, the arrow usually points north.

A map’s index helps viewers find a specific spot on the map using the grid. A map’s legend explains what the symbols on a map mean.

Map Projections

Transferring information from the spherical, or ball-shaped, surface of Earth onto a flat piece of paper is called projection. A globe, a spherical model of Earth, accurately represents the shapes and locations of the continents. But if a globe were cut in half and each half were flattened out into a map, the result would be wrinkled and torn. The size, shape, and relative location of land masses would change.

Projection is a major challenge for cartographers. Every map has some sort of distortion. The larger the area covered by a map, the greater the distortion. Features such as size, shape, distance, or scale can be measured accurately on Earth, but once projected on a flat surface only some, not all, of these qualities can be accurately represented. For example, a map can retain either the correct sizes of landmasses or the correct shapes of very small areas, but not both.

Depending on the map’s purpose, cartographers must decide what elements of accuracy are most important to preserve. This determines which projection to use. For example, conformal maps show true shapes of small areas but distort size. Equal area maps distort shape and direction but show true relative sizes of all areas. There are three basic kinds of projections: planar, conical, and cylindrical. Each is useful in different situations.

In a planar projection, Earth’s surface is projected onto a plane, or flat surface. Imagine touching a globe with a piece of cardboard, mapping that point of contact, then projecting the rest of map onto the cardboard around that point. Planar projections are most accurate at their centers, where the plane “touches” the globe. They are often used for maps of one of the poles.

Imagine you wrapped a cone around Earth, putting the point of the cone over one of the poles. That is a conical projection. The cone intersects the globe along one or two lines of latitude. When the cone is unwrapped and made into a flat map, latitude lines appear curved in circles or semicircles. Lines of longitude are straight and come together at one pole. In conical projection, areas in the mid-latitudes—regions that are neither close to the Equator nor close to the poles—are represented fairly accurately. For this reason, conical projections are often used for maps of the United States, most of which lies in the mid-latitudes.

For a cylindrical projection, imagine that Earth’s surface is projected onto a tube that is wrapped around the globe. The cylinder touches Earth along one line, most often the Equator. When the cylinder is cut open and flattened into a map, the regions near the Equator are the most accurate. Regions near the poles are the most distorted.

Surveying and Remote Sensing

Cartographers rely on survey data for accurate information about the planet. Surveying is the science of determining the exact size, shape, and location of a piece of land. Surveyors gather information from regions both above sea level and beneath bodies of water.

Surveying can be done on foot. Surveyors use many instruments to measure the features, or topography, of the land. A compass, measuring device, and theodolites are often used by surveyors doing field work. A theodolite is an instrument that measures angles. A surveyor may calculate the angle of hills, valleys, and other features by using a theodolite, which is usually mounted on a tripod, or three-legged platform.

Today, many surveyors use remote sensing to collect data about an area without actually physically touching it. Sensors that detect light or radiation emitted by objects are mounted to airplanes or space satellites, collecting information about places on Earth from above. One method of remote sensing is aerial photography, taking photographs of Earth from the air. Aerial photography has eliminated much of the legwork for surveyors and has allowed precise surveying of some places that are impossible to reach on foot. Satellites, spacecraft that orbit Earth, perform remote sensing. For example, Landsat, a satellite that circles Earth 14 times a day, transmits huge volumes of data to computers on Earth. The data can be used to quickly make or correct maps.

How Maps Are Made

Before making a map, cartographers decide what area they want to display and what type of information they want to present. They consider the needs of their audience and the purpose of the map. These decisions determine what kind of projection and scale they need, and what sorts of details will be included.

The language of the map is one thing a cartographer must consider. A blind reader needs a map that has information in braille, for instance. The audience for a map can determine how widely a map is used. A map might use red and green symbols to show the location of maple and pine trees. This information might be easily displayed in a simple legend. However, such a map could not be used by people who are color-blind.

Lines of latitude and longitude are mathematically plotted on a flat surface. Features are drawn in their appropriate location.

Before the development of advanced computer and printing techniques, maps were drawn by hand. Cartographers would draw, or scribe, the map on a sheet of coated plastic with a special etching tool, scraping away the colored coating to leave clear, sharp lines. Several different sheets of plastic were layered on top of each other to add shading and place names. The plastic sheets were used to make a metal printing plate, or proof, for publishing the map.

Today, most mapping is done with the help of computers. The coordinates of every point are entered into a computer. By feeding new data into the computer or deleting old data, map changes can be made quickly and easily. Colors can be changed, new roads added, and topographic features, such as the flow of a river, altered. The new map can then be printed out easily.

Types of Maps

Cartographers make many different types of maps, which can be divided into two broad categories: general reference maps and thematic maps.

General reference maps show general geographic information about an area, including the locations of cities, boundaries, roads, mountains, rivers, and coastlines. Government agencies such as the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) make some general reference maps. Many are topographic maps, meaning that they show changes in elevation. They show all the hills and valleys in an area. This is useful to everyone from hikers trying to choose a route to engineers trying to determine where to build highways and dams.

Thematic maps display distributions, or patterns, over Earth’s surface. They emphasize one theme, or topic. These themes can include information about people, other organisms, or the land. Examples include crop production, people’s average income, where different languages are spoken, or average annual rainfall.

Many thematic maps are now made with the help of geographic information system (GIS) technology. GIS are computer systems that capture, store, and display data related to positions on Earth’s surface. This technology combines information from maps with other data about people, the land, climate, farms, houses, businesses, and much more, allowing multiple sets of data to be displayed on a single map. Many industries and governments use GIS technology for analysis and decision making. For example, GIS data helps officials determine which streams are most in danger of being polluted. It can also help a business decide where to locate a new store.

History of Mapmaking

Through the ages, maps have taken many different forms. The earliest maps were probably sketches made on the ground that showed the surrounding area. People native to the Marshall Islands used palm fibers to show wave patterns between islands in the Pacific Ocean. They used seashells to represent islands. Inuit fishermen in the Arctic carved pieces of driftwood to show coastal features. One of the world’s oldest existing maps was found on a stone tablet in Spain. It dates back nearly 14,000 years.

The ancient Greeks are usually considered the founders of scientific cartography. Greek scholars knew the general size and shape of Earth, and they developed the grid system of latitude and longitude. Eratosthenes, who lived from about 276 to 194 B.C., calculated the size of Earth using mathematics and observations of the sun. Claudius Ptolemaeus, or Ptolemy, was an astronomer, mathematician, and geographer in the second century A.D. He brought mapmaking to a level of precision that would not be seen again until the fifteenth century. He combined all his knowledge about the world into a book called Geography.

In Europe during the Middle Ages, cartographers drew maps reflecting their religious beliefs. These maps were generally simple and sometimes fanciful. The city of Jerusalem, holy to Jews, Christians, and Muslims, was sometimes placed in the center.

Many medieval European maps with Jerusalem at the center are called T&O maps. The mass of land was represented as a round wheel encircled with a single round ocean, the “O” of the T&O. The land encircled by the ocean was divided by a “T” into the three continents known by medieval European cartographers: Asia was the large land mass above the T, Africa and Europe were the two smaller sections on either side of the T, and Jerusalem was at the center. The T-shape splitting the continents was composed of the Mediterranean Sea (between Europe and Africa), the Nile River (between Africa and Asia) and the Don River (between Europe and Asia). The Nile and the Don meet in a single line to form the top of the During these Dark Ages in Europe, Arab scholars kept scientific cartography alive. They preserved the works of Ptolemy and translated them to Arabic. Arab cartographers produced the first reliable globe of the Western world.

During the Islamic Golden Age, Arab cartographers used complicated mathematical and astronomical formulas to help them determine different map projections. In 1154, the scientist and cartographer al-Idrisi made a map of the world that was better than the world maps Europeans were producing. Al-Idrisi’s map included a representation of the entire continent of Eurasia, including Scandinavia, the Arabian Peninsula, the island of Sri Lanka, and the Black and Caspian Seas.

In the fifteenth century, cartography in Europe improved. The development of printing and engraving meant maps that had previously been painted by hand could be copied more quickly. Around the same time, sailors began traveling farther on the oceans. They added newly discovered lands and more detailed coastlines to their maps. Explorers brought back descriptions of the interiors, as well as the coastlines, of continents.

Europeans explored much of the Americas during the sixteenth century, Australia in the seventeenth century, and Antarctica was finally sighted in the early nineteenth century. At this point, fairly accurate maps of the entire world were beginning to be assembled.

In the nineteenth century, cartography became more advanced with the development of a printing process called lithography. Lithography allowed cartographers to make many accurate copies of maps with less labor and expense.

Photography, color printing, and computers all improved mapmaking even more. In just a few decades, the relationship between people and maps changed drastically. For example, instead of using paper street maps, many people navigate using GPS units that communicate with satellites to determine their exact location on Earth. Digital versions of maps can represent Earth in three dimensions, defying the limitations of the flat maps of the past. Almost the entire surface of Earth has been mapped with remarkable accuracy, and this information is available instantly to anyone with an internet connection.

While those are undoubtedly important, they’re hardly the whole picture when it comes to building your new life overseas. Two critical, albeit lesser-known, factors are obtaining a Social Security Number and establishing credit history.

and use of this information.

So, how can a newcomer build credit? Start small and aim for just one line of credit; your best bet is to apply for a secured credit card at your local bank or credit union. Since these cards are backed by funds in your bank account, they’re easy to get with little credit history.

You can also leverage an existing bank relationship: If you have an international credit card, call and see if they’ll convert it into a US credit card. Another option is to take out a small loan at your local bank. You’ll likely pay a high interest rate, but timely payments will build your credit history quickly.

Once you’ve opened an account, it’s important to use it wisely. The three most important factors in determining your credit score are your payment history, credit utilization ratio, and length of credit history. These three factors together account for 80% of your FICO score, so make sure you have them dialed in (Source).

Payment History: The most important factor in determining your credit score. It’s important to establish a spotless track record of on-time payments, since late payments and delinquent accounts ding your score. Setting up automatic payments can keep you effortlessly up-to-date with your bills.

Credit Utilization Ratio: This is the balance-to-limit ratio — or, the amount of total credit being used on any one account. Keeping this ratio below 30% will improve your credit score. For example, if you have a $1,000 limit on a credit card, carry less than a $300 balance. Using more than 30% credit on any one account can be a sign that you’re struggling financially. To maintain optimal utilization, you can pay down your balance, or ask your credit card company to raise your limit.

Length of Credit History: The longer your accounts are open, the higher your credit score will be.

Chandra Grahan 2022: Why is there a lunar eclipse? Read, these important and interesting things related to it

Chandra Grahan 2022: Why is there a lunar eclipse? Read, these important and interesting things related to it

Tomorrow (November 8) the last lunar eclipse of the year is going to take place. Along with many other countries, it can also be seen in India in the evening. Why is there a lunar eclipse? Know, some important and interesting things related to it.


  • In the eyes of science, a lunar eclipse is just an astronomical event.
  • When the Earth comes between the Moon and the Sun, a lunar eclipse occurs.
  • Chandra Grahan 2022 Timing: When and where will the last lunar eclipse of the year be seen in India, when will Sutak start?

Chandra Grahan 2022: Tomorrow (November 8) the last lunar eclipse of the year is going to happen. Along with many other countries, it can also be seen in India in the evening. In the country, it will start at 4:23 pm and end at 6.19 pm. However, the Sutak period of this lunar eclipse will take nine hours before. It will be visible in Australia, Iceland, Russia, America, Asia, Europe, Pacific Ocean. At the same time, in India, the total lunar eclipse will be visible in Ranchi, Kolkata, Puri, Kohima, Itanagar etc. and partially in many other cities.

Whether it is a lunar eclipse or a solar eclipse, seeing it creates curiosity in everyone. Many types of questions come in the minds of people like how this eclipse takes place, why does it happen or what can happen by seeing it etc. According to beliefs, one should avoid doing any auspicious work during the lunar eclipse. Even sleeping is forbidden. Let us know some interesting and interesting things related to lunar eclipse, about which you may not even know.

Lunar Eclipse and Sutak Timings in India

The last lunar eclipse of the year will take place on Tuesday, November 08. Since it appeared in India, its Sutak period would be valid. From the religious point of view, whenever there is an eclipse, then there is a Sutak period. Sutak is considered an inauspicious time in which no auspicious work is done. During the Sutak period, worshiping is prohibited and the doors of the temples are closed. The touch period of the last lunar eclipse of the year will start at 2:39 pm. According to the Vedic calendar, this total lunar eclipse will be visible in some northeastern states of India, while partial lunar eclipse will be seen in other places.

This lunar eclipse will take place in Aries and Bharani Nakshatra. On this day, the lord planet Mars of Aries will be sitting in retrograde motion in the third house, when the Moon will be in position with Rahu. Often at the time of lunar eclipse, there is Ketu with the Moon and Rahu with the Sun, but on this eclipse, Ketu is with the Sun and Rahu is sitting with the Moon, so it is not considered very good from the astrological point of view.

Some interesting facts related to lunar eclipse

Whether it is a lunar eclipse or a solar eclipse, according to mythological beliefs, it is called inauspicious, but in the eyes of science, it is just an astronomical event. When the Earth comes between the Moon and the Sun, a lunar eclipse occurs.

Do you know that lunar eclipse is auspicious for some zodiac signs and inauspicious for some. If your zodiac sign is Aries, Pisces, Virgo, Libra, Sagittarius then you should be careful on lunar eclipse. At the same time, this eclipse can also prove to be beneficial for Cancer, Leo, Gemini.

Like the solar eclipse, there is no harm to the eyes by looking at the lunar eclipse. You can see the lunar eclipse with open eyes. For this no tools or glasses are needed. However, if you look at it with binoculars, telescope, it will look more beautiful, clear and close.

During the eclipse period, it is advised to be careful in the diet. Do you know that common people are forbidden to eat food during the eclipse period, but children, pregnant women and elderly people can eat and drink some things.

Although the lunar eclipse occurs only on the full moon day, but it does not occur on every full moon. Do you know the reason for this? Actually, when the Moon's orbit is tilted on the Earth's orbit, every time the Moon is unable to enter the Earth's shadow and leaves from below or above.

According to religious beliefs, when a dispute arose between the gods and the demons during the churning of the ocean, Vishnu took the form of Mohina to solve it. Lord Vishnu made everyone sit separately. Then Rahu inadvertently tasted the nectar. The Sun and the Moon told this thing to Vishnu. After which Lord Vishnu beheaded Rahu with Sudarshan Chakra. Since, he had tasted the nectar, due to which he did not die. From then onwards the head part was known as Rahu and the torso part was known as Ketu. This is the main reason why Rahu-Ketu consider Sun and Moon as their enemies and cover the moon whenever it is a full moon day. Then there is a lunar eclipse.

Why are the letters horizontal and vertical on the keyboard? Find out why the buttons of ABCD are not consecutive

Why are the letters horizontal and vertical on the keyboard? Find out why the buttons of ABCD are not consecutive

Why are the letters written horizontally instead of ABCD in the computer keyboard, if you do not know, then find out this interesting information today.

Many times we are unaware of things that are around us. So let us tell you the interesting things related to the keyboard.

While working, your finger reaches the button of the keyboard that you want to type. Alphabet letters ABCD etc. are not serialized on keyboard. Yet you continue to type conveniently. If not in the present time, then in the early times, the thought must have occurred in your mind that why this button on the keyboard means letters are not in alphabetical order?.

Why are letters A, B, C, D, E and not in Q, W, E, R, T, Y format?. Before computers and laptops, even in typewriters and now in our smartphones, these letters are in QWERTY format. Is there any science behind it?. What were the keyboards before? And finally why would such a QWERTY format have been designed?. So let us know the answer to these questions here.

You look at a typewriter machine. It will have QWERTY format only. This format of keyboard was in circulation even before the advent of computers or laptops. This style was created by Christopher Latham Sholes. The letter was being used in this way in the first typewriter that came in the year 1874. It was then known as Remington-1 but was this format the only one in circulation at the beginning or was it preceded by A,B,C,D in order.

Have you ever thought that all the keys are inside the keyboard in the computer we use? That is, why are ABCD not consecutive? You have to read this article to get the answer to this question. Many times we are unaware of things that are around us. So let us tell you the interesting things related to the keyboard.

Before QWERTY was the ABCD model. Earlier Typewriter Keyboard was also in A,B,C,D format but it did not give speed in typing and it was also inconvenient. Many people experimented with something to increase typing speed but the most successful model came in the form of QWERTY. It also made typing easier and the speed was also good.

When everyone started learning a new computer as a child, it took time to find the alphabet on the keyboard. It used to take minutes to type a line. At that time, everyone must have thought that the creator of the keyboard would have no idea that instead of writing ABCD in the line, he made such a keyboard. But when I grew up, I realized that only horizontal words can be typed without looking at the keyboard.

Why this format was finally decided for the keyboard-

Typing on a typewriter was difficult because of the ABCD keyboard. The main reason was that there was a problem in typing because the words were very close. Then, E,I,S,M are mostly used in English words. Whereas, alphabets like X, Y, Z are less used. So it was more difficult. Then, in the 1870s, the QWERTY format came into being after a lot of testing.


History of Keyboard-

The history of the keyboard is linked to the typewriter. That is, the QWERTY keyboard format has been running even before the advent of computers. Christopher Latham Sholes, who invented the typewriter in 1868, was the first to make a keyboard in the ABCD format. After which he felt that he was not able to type at the speed at which he had to type. Also problems were coming up with many keys.
