Physical road map with inset thematic maps, climate table and brief historical notes. General relief is clearly depicted by a combination of hill-shading, altitude tinting, selected spot heights and contours at 200m intervals. Seasonally inundated areas are marked and off-shore coral reefs are included. Road classification distinguishes asphalt, gravel, dry-weather roads and tracks. Main railways are marked and symbols denote airports and ports. Additional symbols show historic and archaeological sites, lighthouses, monasteries and hot springs. Beyond the border of Eritrea no detail is shown. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 1º intervals.
Land use in 5 altitudinal zones is briefly described in the legend, and the country’s history up to 1994 is outlined in another panel. Four inset thematic maps with explanatory notes show: rainfall, soil, geology and mineral occurrences, and provincial divisions and the distribution of potential tourist attractions. Graphs show the monthly rainfall and temperature statistics for 4 locations.
