Map or Atlas

Although the terms map and atlas are very similar, there is a difference between them: a map is a visual representation or scale model of spatial concepts such as geographical regions, locations, and their attributes, whereas an atlas is a collection of maps providing additional information and analyses of maps. Atlases often contain social, religious, economic, and geopolitical information for a specific region.
