Publisher’s Description: In 2006 the Pedagogical Institute of the Greek Ministry of Education produced a new series of School Maps aiming to fully support the educational needs of Geography courses in the first and second year of high school (ages 12 and 13). Maps cover all geographical scales; global, continental and national.
