What Is a Scratch Map and How It Can Help You

If travelling is your passion, you will love scratch maps. Even if you do not love travelling, this is a great product for everyone. Scratch map is not a new thing in the market. There are many small and mid-sized companies out there that are making these types of maps for years. And the best part, these are very famous among people especially those who love travelling.

What is a scratch map?

It is a world map having a top layer of gold foil or any other scratch-able material. This top layer can be easily scratched. And once scratched it will reveal a whole new colorful world map. So the idea is to differentiate revealed countries from un-scratched ones by colors.

Once a traveler has visited a country, he will simply scratch that country revealing a colored map underneath making that particular country different from the rest of the world. This is quite helpful for travelers since they can easily see from the map where they have been and where they still want to go. For instance, if a traveler has been to France, Italy, Brazil and China. He will scratch these four countries on his map while all the other countries of the world will remain covered with golf foil.

Scratch map is a very useful thing. It is however, not mandatory for the travelers to use it. Anyone can use. It is a best learning tool too. You can give it to your child and tell her to scratch off the countries after learning them. You can also give it yo your friends and family as gifts.
