Detection problems may also arise in the way that a map is scanned by the reader. The overall pattern of shape and colour on a map seems to influence the scanning strategy adopted for perception of detail. Visual acuity of the reader is also significant. If the map is used in poor light some small symbols may not be seen at all. Most maps are designed to be read at the same distance from the eye as a book and so maps displayed on the classroom wall may well be too distant for children to see the symbols clearly enough.

One useful skill to practise with these maps is that of being able to read distances from the map. These are often shown in the form of numbers printed in between 'lollipops' marked at towns or significant junctions. This arrangement can be sometimes quite complex, with two or three levels of distances shown with the size of the numbers matching different-sized'lollipops'.
