A map is representation of a geographic area, usually a portion of the earth’s surface, drawn or printed on a flat surface. In most instances a map is a diagrammatic rather than a pictorial representation of the terrain; it usually contains a number of generally accepted symbols, which indicate the various natural, artificial, or cultural, features of the area it covers.

An atlas is a collection of maps or charts bound in a volume. It may cover the entire world or specific regions and frequently contains indexes of place-names, populations, natural resources, main industries, and other factual information. An atlas may also be devoted to a special subject, such as climate, agriculture, diseases, languages, or astronomy.
