Large-scale maps:
Large-scale maps include Cadastral maps and Topography maps made at scales of \(1: 250,000\) or \(1: 25,000\), as well as village maps, city zonal plans, and house plans drawn at scales of \(1: 4,000\) and \(1: 500\).
 
1. Cadastral maps:
 
The word cadastral comes from the French word cadastre, which means "registry of territorial property". These maps are used to illustrate who owns a piece of land by defining agricultural boundaries and the layout of individual houses in urban areas.
 
Government entities create cadastral maps in order to collect taxes and revenues as well as keep track of who owns what.

2. Topographical Maps:
 
These maps are made on a quite large size as well. Topographical maps are based on detailed surveys and are produced in the form of a series of maps by national mapping agencies in practically every country.

Topographical Maps
 
Relief, drainage, agricultural land, woodland, towns, means of communication, location of schools, post offices, and other services and amenities are all depicted on these maps using unique colours and symbols.
Small-scale maps:
1. Wall Maps:
 
For usage in classrooms or lecture halls, wall maps are usually drawn on huge sheets of paper or a plastic foundation. Wall maps have a lesser scale than topographical maps but a larger scale than atlas maps.
