Ge­o­graph­i­cal map of the Mal­tese Is­lands

Malta Independent - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

A new at­trac­tive ge­o­graph­i­cal wall chart of the Mal­tese Is­lands has been pro­duced in line with the na­tional cur­ricu­lum to suit the needs of stu­dents at sec­ondary level. Ed­u­ca­tion and Em­ploy­ment Min­is­ter Evarist Bar­tolo was pre­sented with the first copies.

Care has been taken for the Mal­tese name places to be brought up to date. The map serves as a use­ful tool to cre­ate aware­ness among stu­dents and to un­der­stand the sur­face fea­tures of our is­lands.

This project has been un­der­taken by lo­cal com­pany Au­dio Vis­ual Cen­tre Ltd, in col­lab­o­ra­tion with rep­utable Aus­trian pub­lisher, Car­to­graphic In­sti­tute Frey­tag & Berndt, one of the old­est car­to­graphic houses in the world with head­quar­ters in Vi­enna.

Well-known ge­ol­o­gist Dr Peter Gatt is an­other con­trib­u­tor, whose in­put has pro­vided valu­able ge­o­log­i­cal in­for­ma­tion which in­cludes a ge­o­log­i­cal over­view of the Cen­tral Mediter­ranean and a ge­o­log­i­cal rock cross-sec­tion of Malta which shows the stratig­ra­phy as well as de­for­ma­tion of the rock.

The map has a unique chart of the 68 coun­cil de­lin­eations and their coat of arms. The map con­tains a wealth of ge­o­graph­i­cal in­for­ma­tion that can be sourced through a de­tailed leg­end.

The wall chart was in­au­gu­rated at the re­cent Na­tional Book Fair.
