Put Mexico on the Map

OPINION by Mark Lacy

The large publishers and distributors of North American road atlases such as Rand McNally, AAA and National Geographic, should show greater respect for Mexico by including more detailed maps of it's states.

Like the United States and the Canadian Provinces, so too is Mexico made up of states, yet it occupies only two pages in the back of most atlases.

People are traveling to Mexico in ever-increasing numbers and need detailed maps of the diverse states like Guerrero and Quintana Roo in the South and the busy Northern border states like Tamaulipas and Sonora.

More detailed maps of the roads and towns in Mexico's states can improve commerce and tourism, and our knowledge of the language and geography of the North American continent.
