Texas at 1:1,000,000 in a series of indexed touring road maps of USA from Hallwag, with each title conveniently covering a large region and providing enlargement(s) of most visited areas, city maps and other useful tourist information. Enlargements in this title show in greater detail the Houston and the Dallas - Fort Worth conurbations, plus San Antonio, Austin, Galveston – Texas City, and El Paso. The northern part of the state beyond Swisher is shown on an inset.
The map is part of Hallwag’s series covering USA at 1:1,000,000. The series has been revised from its earlier version and now uses cartography from Hema which provides an excellent combination of information about the terrain, the road network and places of interest. The base map has effective but unobtrusive relief shading with plenty of names of mountain ranges, peaks (heights in feet), deserts, etc. Colouring prominently highlights national or state parks, forests and other protected areas, as well as Indian Reservations and military zones.
Road network clearly shows road numbers, indicates free and toll highways with locations of services, and gives driving distances on interstate and primary routes. The maps also show Amtrak railway lines with stations, local airports, state borders and time zone boundaries. An extensive range of symbols indicate various places of tourist interest. Each map is indexed and for GPS navigation has latitude and longitude lines drawn at 30’ intervals.
