COMPOSITE IMAGE OF THE MIDDLE EAST


REGIONAL MAP OF THE MIDDLE EAST


This is a general reference map of the Middle East.  Overall it shows sufficient detail for this type of map.  The text is blurry
and probably because of the performance of the scanner.


KURDISH DISTRIBUTION


Kurdish distribution in the Middle East.

GENERAL REFERENCE MAP OF TURKEY


This general reference map of Turkey could maybe have a little more detail, such as major roads, or a symbol scale
to indicate the size of the cities.  It does include a scale which is helpful in determining distance.  The text is,
again, somewhat blurry.


AREA MAP OF TURKEY

This is a comparison of the size of Turkey to the U.S.  This map is imformative enough to see the relative sizes.
It is not of high resolution, but the contrast of colors is good.


POPULATION DENSITY OF TURKEY 1990

This is a population density map of Turkey based on 1990 Turkish census data.  The thematics are good but the clarity of the
text could be better.


ECONOMIC ACTIVITY OF TURKEY


The text of this map is also lacking in clarity.  The symbols of the legend are imformative but seem to overwhelm the map.  A larger map may have been better, or smaller symbols.
