Map of Missouri

Missouri is a state located in the Midwestern region of the United States(Missouri, n.d.). It is bordered by eight states, including Iowa to the north, Illinois, Kentucky, and Tennessee to the east, Arkansas to the south, and Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska to the west(Missouri, MO, State, n.d.). With a population of 6.1 million people, Missouri ranks 21st in land area(Map of the State of Missouri, USA, n.d.). The state covers an area of 112,167 square kilometers, situated within the coordinates 38.5 N and 92.5 W(Where is Missouri Located?, n.d.). Missouri is the meeting place of the eastern timberlands and western prairies and of the southern and northern regions of the United States(Missouri, n.d.).
Missouri's topography is diverse, with a variety of landforms and elevations. The state is divided into three main regions: the Ozark Plateau, the Missouri River Lowlands, and the Dissected Till Plains(Topographical Map - Missouri Topo Map, n.d.). The Ozark Plateau is characterized by rugged hills and valleys, while the Missouri River Lowlands are primarily flat floodplains. The Dissected Till Plains are a series of rolling hills and valleys, formed by glacial activity during the last Ice Age(Surface Elevation Map of Missouri - PUB2874, n.d.). Missouri's highest point is Taum Sauk Mountain, which stands at 540 meters above sea level(Missouri Maps & Facts, n.d.).
Missouri is home to several major rivers and lakes, which play a significant role in the state's geography and economy. The Missouri River is the longest river in the state, stretching over 3,700 kilometers from its source in Montana to its confluence with the Mississippi River in St. Louis(Map of Missouri Lakes, Streams and Rivers, n.d.). The Mississippi River forms Missouri's eastern border and is a vital transportation route for goods and commodities(Missouri Lakes and Rivers Map, n.d.). Other major rivers in Missouri include the Des Moines River, the Osage River, and the Meramec River(Topographical Map - Missouri Topo Map, n.d.). The state also has numerous lakes and reservoirs, including Lake of the Ozarks, Table Rock Lake, and Truman Lake(Missouri Lakes and Rivers Map: Show-Me State Waterways, n.d.).
