This waterproof and tear-resistant map from ITMB combines an indexed street plan of Jerusalem with a more detailed enlargement of its Old City, plus on the reverse a road map covering the Holy Land: northern Israel and the Palestinian Territories. On both the plans and the road map all place names are shown only in Latin alphabet. Within Jerusalem’s Old City sites of religious importance are given their alternative names.
On one side is coverage of Jerusalem. The city with its outer districts is shown on an indexed plan at 1:10,000. On the eastern side of the Old City the plan includes the Mount of Olives and Mount Scopus; in the west it extends beyond the government district and the museum/university quarter but does not include Yad Vashem or Mount Herzl. Main traffic routes are highlighted and locations of petrol stations and car parks are marked. The Jerusalem light rail route is shown with stops. The plan highlights numerous places of interest and facilities, including selected hotels, embassies, museums and other cultural or educational institutions, places of worship, Israeli governmental buildings, etc.
Accompanying the main plan are three additional panels: a large, very clear enlargement at 1:4,000 showing the Old City in much greater detail, including the Stations of the Cross on Via Dolorosa; a road map of the city’s environs including Bethlehem and Jericho; plus a diagram of the existing and proposed light rail lines within the whole of Israel.
The reverse side is covered by an indexed road map of most of Israel at 1:225,000, extending south to Rahat and the southern boundary of the West Bank (i.e. along the Dead Sea Masada and Ein Bokek are not included). The map has altitude colouring to show the topography, including the depression along the Jordan and the Dead Sea. National parks and other protected areas are marked. Road network indicates driving distances on main and selected secondary routes. Railway lines marked, with a separate diagram of the network, and local airports are also shown. Towns with tourist accommodation are highlighted and symbols mark various other places of interest including campsites and youth hostels, archaeological sites, etc.
