MAP SKILLS A map is a picture of a place. We use maps to help us know where things are. In order to use a map, you need to know a few things. This is a compass rose. It shows the four cardinal directions (north, south, east, and west) and the four secondary directions. When you look at a map, you will know which way is north by looking at the compass rose. The legend or key will tell you what the symbols on a map mean. It might tell you the symbol for a road, an airport, a school, a park, or a city. The scale will help you find out distances on the map. Here is an example. The scale tells you that one inch on the map equals 150 miles. You want to travel from Benton to Portville. So you take out a ruler and measure the distance from Benton to Portville. It measures two inches. How many miles is Portville from Benton?
