What is the difference between a physical map and a political map?

  • Geography -

    A physical map:
    shows natural land marks, such as mountains, rivers, & oceans has more attracted colors on the map. shows the cities too.



    The political map:
    A political map shows countries, their borders & main cities.
    shows more countries and no cities. has less information on it.

    (Many maps show both.)
    Well, a physical map includes physical features such as river, lakes, mountains, or states depending on how much area it covers. A political map includes shows the states and important details. Since I figure this is for Daily Geography (I am doing it myself) put down, "A physical map shows features as a political map shows states and their capitals."
    The difference between a political and a physical map is a political map does not show mountains or any sort of landform. but a political msp shows each state or country border and shows citys.
