Cartographers are those people who often make standard maps which are accurate and which use highly exact scales. You already know about the need and use of scale and symbols in a map. You students may not essentially be able to have such command. in the modern time. There are also various technologies and methods used in drawing a map. Photographs taken by satellites from high up in the sky can be developed into required maps. Here you learn how to draw a good outline of Nepal.

Nepal has a definite location, extension, and inclination. It also has various bulges and recordings along its border. Though you cannot draw in exact scales of every portion, you must be careful about the relative size and their position. Follow the following steps to draw an outline map of your country. you can accomplish after several practices.

• Start with a rectangle 10 cm *6 cm. (for a bigger map fitting on a page of a copy, double all measurements, i.e. 20 cm *12 cm)
• Draw lines 2 cm away from each edge, and short dotted line in the middle.
• Now you have AB = 6 cm, AD = 10 cm,DG = 2 cm, AM = 2 cm, BO = 2 cm, ER = 3 cm, RG = 3 cm.
• Notice how these divisions mark corners of our country with Mustang jutting northwards at approximately 5 cm from each edge.
• To maintain the standard inclination of Nepal, draw so as to have the following pairs of points roughly at the same level:

Pair 1: Mahendranagar (Kanchanpur) and north-east mustang (Dhaulagiri)

Pair 2: Nepalgunj (Banke) and north-east Taplejung

Pair 3: Birgunj (parsa) and north-east Ilam (main fold along the eastern border of Nepal)

• The exact details of the outline are not important, but you should practice drawing the outline several times, first looking at the map above, and then from memory.
• Add the scale. If you do the map twice as big than 1 cm = 40 km.
• Now practice drawing the boundaries of the development regions.
• Learn the approximate position of the different towns, including where you live yourself.

### Very Short Questions

A map is the representation of whole or some parts of the earth or any other parts, or objects found in any body of universe on a flat sheet of paper with appropriate scale and color (so that each of the point in the map can show the real difference in location of any objects).

There is no field of study where there is no use for a map. Map expresses a lot of spatial information through graphics that is easy to extract and understand. It’s relationship in combination with social attributes. Moreover, it helps to understand the problems and prospects of an area in terms of resources, infrastructures, etc. maps present multiple layers of information simultaneously; so we can compare different variables quickly. That is why it is said that picture is worth thousand words.
