Abstract(unpublished)
Contained within the Atlas of Canada Poster Map Series, is a poster entitled "Canada, A land of Superlatives." This colorful double sided poster map features Canadian firsts in geography, communications, culture and sport. One side of the poster map features a stunning map of Canada derived from satellite images. Smaller map inserts feature Canada in terms of geological history, from the formation of earth, then the continents, the ice age and human migration to the Americas 40,000 years ago. Reflected on the second side of the poster map are superlatives- the biggest, highest, longest and first events. These events are detailed in text with accompanying graphics, pictures and charts. This poster map was produced as a joint venture between Canadian Geographic, the magazine of the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, and the National Atlas Information Service of the Department of Natural Resources Canada.
