Kids Map of World is a great source for children to explore the world’s land and seas.  By using interactive world maps for kids, they will have a great time learning.

World map is a drawing of the world’s land and seas. This is a visual representation of whole or part of world surface which is depicted with certain scale to represent the world actual size.  

Large areas of land is called continent. Between the continents there are oceans, which are depicted as large blue areas. Oceans cover more than seven-tenths of the earth. 

Land covers about three tenths of the earth. The land is divided into seven continents. The largest continent is Asia. The second largest continent is Africa, followed by North America, South America, Antarctica (the icy continent around the South Pole), and Europe. The smallest continent is Australia. 

Between North and South Poles there is an imagine line called equator. The latitude of the Equator is 0°. The length of Earth's equator is 40,075.16 kilometres (24,901.5 mi). An equator is the intersection of a sphere's surface with the plane perpendicular to the sphere's axis of rotation and containing the sphere's center of mass. The capitalized term Equator refers to the Earth's equator. In simpler language, the Equator is an imaginary line on the Earth's surface equidistant from the North Pole and South Pole that divides the Earth into a Northern Hemisphere and a Southern Hemisphere. The equators of other planets and astronomical bodies are defined analogously. 

In 2008 the world population is around 6.7 billion people. More than 4 billion live in Asia, 729 million live in Europe, Africa has 973 million people, 511 million live in Latin America and Caribbean, 337 million live in Northern America, 30 million live in Oceania, and Australia has only about 17 million people. As of 5 May 2010, the human population of the world is estimated by the United States Census Bureau to be 6,818,900,000.
