Calgary Map for the big picture
More about Calgary.
Traveling to a new place for exploration and adventure? This first
gives you an overview, just in case that new place is Calgary.
It is always better to have a reasonable amount of information about the place you choose. That will help you to figure out where you are
and where you want to go.
Somehow, it can even increase the fun you can have at your destination. Probably by increasing travel efficiency and extending the time, somewhat, that you spend there.
So, if you are heading this way, use a
map to see a few simple facts about it. That way you may be able to visit places which you may not have even known about otherwise.
As Calgary is situated in the feet of the Rocky Mountains, we have our own topographic profile. It is relatively hilly. Calgary's elevation averages around 1048 meters (3440 feet) above sea level at
and to approximately 1083 meters (3556 feet) at the Calgary International Airport. And much higher at the top of Nose Hill, on the northern part of the Calgary map below.
The areal coverage of city area is 721 km, larger than both Toronto and New York city. In fact the next increase in size may have occurred by the time you read this.
What kind of driving experience did you have?
Have a few tips and instructions for people who are using maps. Figuring out how to find something can be daunting at times and any added info can be a treasure.
If you got it, maybe someone else needs it. Please enter a paragraph or two to show how you did it, how you found it, how you got there.
Some parts of Calgary can be quite confusing and any help will be welcomed.
