The Northern Hemisphere
Contained within the Atlas of Canada's Various Map Series, 1965 to 2006, is a map of the Northern Hemisphere which is the second edition produced in 1965. It shows most of the continental and ocean areas of the Northern Hemisphere north of the following degrees of North latitude: 18 degrees on the top or Asian side, 20 degrees on the Pacific or left side, 12 degrees on the right or Middle East / African side and 14.5 degrees on the Atlantic or bottom side. All four corners show land and water areas south of the Equator. The map uses a Polar Equidistant Project and the scale varies depending on the location due to the properties of the projection. All land areas are a single light brown colour and all water areas are a light greenish blue. All text, lines of latitude and longitude and hydrography are black.
