On this card better than other maps of the Atlas, representation of geographical objects (islands, peninsulas, bays, straits, seas, etc.).

Comparing this map with a map of "Mineral Resources", we can trace the relationship of forms of relief from the mineral deposits of different origin (sedimentary, igneous, etc.).

This card is used in the preparation of the characteristics of natural resources, as well as a regional review in the evaluation of natural-resource potential of the country.
