The original Outline Map Atlas for Arizona Classrooms was designed and produced by ASU Cartographer Barbara Trapido-Lurie, with assistance from her students in 1996.  Many of these exciting outliine maps have been adopted by the National Council of Geographic Education and National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Mission Geography in their projects.  Throughout the years, additional amps have been distributed in issues of the Arizona Geographic Alliance AtoZ Newsletter.  Now Geoliteracy proudly adds 21 new maps to this fine collection.


You can download these maps as .pdf files.  These files can be seen with the program Adobe Acrobat Reader.


To print the maps so that they are as large as possible on the page without their edges being cut off, you may need to change an option in the Print dialog box.


If you are using Adobe Acrobat Reader 4, check “Fit to page”.
If you are using Adobe Acrobat Reader 5, check “Expand small pages to paper size”, and check that “Auto-rotate and center pages” is also checked.
