The United States is a large country with a wide range of physical features, from tall mountains to deep valleys, rivers, lakes, and plains. The first map of the United States that you'll need to become familiar with is the one below, which shows the country's important geographic features, such as lakes, rivers, and mountain ranges. Because two states, Alaska and Hawaii, are located so far away from the continental United States (the other 48 states), they will be shown in separate boxes on the bottom left in most of the maps in this interactive.

In order to understand the geography of the United States and how it has influenced the history of the country, it's important to know how to read and interpret a map.
Symbols such as lines, colors, or pictures are often used in maps to represent geographical features, such as lakes, rivers, or mountains.
