This sixth edition of the Nova Scotia Atlas provides in-depth coverage of the entire province unavailable anywhere else. The maps include numbered and colour-coded highways with exit numbers, hiking trails and national parks. There are details such as power lines, ferry routes, hospitals and communication towers. Airports, helipads and landing strips are mapped. Also included are all provincial parks (campgrounds, picnic sites, boat launches), with a text description of each. The maps clearly show physical features, including rivers, lakes, hills, islands, marshes and beaches.
The revisions in this new edition include all new highway construction completed in the past five years, three new wilderness areas and six new nature reserves. Waterfalls are now shown, and Crown land information has been extensively updated. All paved and unpaved roads (longer than 200 m) are included, as are a myriad of protected areas including game sanctuaries, wilderness and wildlife management areas. County and municipal boundaries are shown.
