US Map of States

Shown above is a US Map of States, with state names and state borders.  

Standard maps (like the ones shown here) are two dimensional representations of a three dimensional space.  

Three dimensional maps are commonly known as relief maps.

Shown above is a standard 4-color map, as a map only needs four colors to ensure that no two connected areas are of the same color.  

Shown below is a blank printable map outline of the United States, including state abbreviations. To print out the map shown below, simply right click on the image and save it to your picture file.  

Then test yourself by coloring the map shown below, using only 4 colors.  When you are finished, no two adjacent states should be the same color.
