The ones we present below are physical maps of Argentina that represent the orography and hydrography of Argentina, with emphasis on different aspects that we explain below:
This is an physical orographic map, with modern representation of the relief and geographical features.
Includes mountain ranges with name and exact height of the main peaks. Also, provincial and national limits.
The map also presents a detail of the main rivers and their tributaries, the lagoons and reservoirs, and the Atlantic coast and its main features.
Unlike the previous one, this physical map is also alti-bathymetric because it includes, in addition to the heights, the geographical depressions. In it, the heights and depressions are represented, by color graduations, whose equivalence in meters is explained in the references. It also contains the main hills, mountain ranges, ranges and peaks of Argentina. It also has the names of the provinces, which allows us to understand which province each of the geographical features belongs to, and its proximity to the main cities.
This alti-bathymetric physical map of Argentina has the representation of the altimetry of the mountain areas with their names.
