Question
what is the inset box on a map?, how does it look?, what information does it contain?I think they are mostly found on political maps but I'm not sure.

Could u please clarify and answer my above questions
Thank you

Answer
An inset is just part of the main map that shows greater detail, and is in a separate box to set it apart from the main map.

For example a map of Washington that shows just major roads might have insets for major cities that show main streets within those cities.
