Egypt 1:1,125,000 Travel Map, waterproof, GPS-compatible REISE
This map is waterproof and tear-resistant, durable enough to survive time spent in the rucksack, pocket or on a restaurant table. It is double-sided to provide the best balance between a good scale and a convenient sheet size (size 100 x 70 cm / 39.5 x 27.5 in) with topographic and tourist information.
The map covers the whole country, including the whole of the Western Desert and the Sinai, with just the southernmost part of the Red Sea coast shown as an inset.
Road network is easy to see on a clear base which shows the country's topography by altitude colouring with contours, spot heights, and plenty of names of mountain ranges, hills, etc. National Parks and other protected areas are highlighted. Road network includes desert tracks and shows distances on main routes. Railway lines are included and domestic airports are marked. Internal administrative boundaries are shown with names of the provinces; the map also shows oil pipelines.
Symbols highlight numerous places of interest, including UNESCO World Heritage sites, ancient Egyptian and other archaeological remains, monasteries and religious sites, etc. Around El Alamein, often not included on maps which concentrate on covering the Nile Valley and Sinai, locations of war cemeteries are marked. The map has a latitude and longitude grid at intervals of 1° and an index of place names. Multilingual map legend includes English. High quality German cartography.
