Geography of Continents, Countries and Cities
Major mountain ranges are shown in shaded relief and labeled by name. Asia is home to the Himalaya Mountain Range, the range that contains many of the world's tallest peaks. Many important inland lakes are in Asia, including Lake Baikal in Siberia. It is the largest lake in the world on the basis of volume.
The map represents the continent of Asia at a 1:11,000,000 equatorial scale using a Lambert Azimuthal Equal Area projection.
Ocean and Freshwater Detail
The oceans and major seas are shown in a gradient of blue colors that represent different water depths. This allows you to see ocean trenches, mid-ocean ridges and continental shelf areas at a glance. The contested waters of the South China Sea and Sea of Japan are in these shallow water areas where the sovereignty of tiny islands are hotly contested because of the seafloor resources that surround them.
