One of the titles in a series of maps of the administrative departments of Peru, with topography shown by altitude colouring and spot heights. Most maps also indicate cultivated areas. Scales vary considerably, given different sizes of the departments. Railways and four different types of roads and dirt tracks are shown, as well as local airports and aerodromes. The maps also show the subdivisions of the departments into provinces and districts, indicating administrative capital of each unit. Most sheets also include a panel with general information about the state (e.g. population distribution, climate, etc.).
Latitude and longitude grid is drawn at 1º intervals, making this series very useful for identifying the locations of small places on the 1:100,000 topographic survey of the country. Map legend is in Spanish only. Publication dates vary from mid-1980s to mid-1990s, with a handful of titles revised later. Each map shows one department only and no detail of any kind is given for the adjacent departments, beyond their names.
