Canada's capital is Ottawa, the biggest cities are Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver. Flights to Canada usually go to one of these urban centres.
Canada is the second largest country of the world. Because the names of the localities in our map would not be readable, we subdivided the maps and present several pages - for the other maps please click in the list of North and Central American countries below.
Baffin Island (in Inuktitut Qikiqtaluk) is the 12th largest land area of the world (after Sumatra, Madagascar, Borneo, New Guinea, Greenland and the six continents). It is part of the Province of Nunavut. The settlements have only a few thousand inhabitants: Cape Dorset (Kinngait), Kimmirut, Iqaluit, Pangnirtung, Qikiqtarjuaq, Clyde River (Kangiqtugapik), Mittimatalik (Pond Inlet), Nanisivik, Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay). In close vicinity at the Canadian mainland are located the settlements of Igloolik (Iglulik), Hall Beach (Sanirajak), Kugaaruk, Repulse Bay (Naujaat), and Taloyoak. On Southampton island is located the village of Coral Harbour (Sallit). North of Baffin island are located the islands of Bulot, Devon, and Ellesmere, and two more settlements Grise Fiord (Ausuittuq) and Resolute (Qausuittuq). Sometimes the Inuit names are more commonly used, sometimes the English names. Seems to depend on who mainly lives there. Generally the Inuit seem to slowly outnumber the whites.
The official languages of Canada are English, French and Inuktitut. Inuktitut is official only in the province of Nunavut, French and English all over the country, although French is primarily spoken in Québec. There are many more native languages in Canada, however without official status in any region. In our map however, we have given the native American names of the localities in the Northern Territories next to the English names. It is quite possible that in the near future these native names will gain official status.
In contrast to French and English, Inuktitut is not written with the Latin alphabet, but with the Inuktitut alphabet consisting of 14 consonants combined with the vowels a, i, u and none each. In our Canada maps, the Inuktitut spellings of the localities are given in those parts of the country where the Inuktitut names are of importance (Nunavut and some adjacent areas).
Tourism is locally of high importance in Canada. We would appreciate more detailed information, also about tourism, sea voyages, beach holidays, flights, or individual tours to Canada.

is our Map
of the World with original scripts (original size 70 x 100
cm), from which the detailed map shown above has been cut out. The numbers of
city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country,
by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing
traditional errors provoked by simply copying such information from previous

on which the information contained in this map is based:
vegetational base map was aligned with satellite pictures from Google
official names of the countries are quite well researched at www.geonames.de.
Also here you can find information on the geography of many countries: www.geographixx.de.
numbers of inhabitants of the cities were taken from www.citypopulation.de.
the mountain peak altitudes were largely derived form www.peakbagger.com.
