Maps in APA

Cite maps that are found on the web just like you would an electronic image: 

Basic Format for an Electronic Image

Author (Role of Author). (Year image was created). Title of work [Type of work], Retrieved
      Month Day, Year, from: URL (address of web site)

Basic Format for an Electronic Image (No Author) 

Title of work [Type of work]. (Year image was created). Retrieved Month Day, Year, from:
      URL (address of web site)

    Basic Format for an Electronic Image (No Author, No Title, No Date)

    Many images found on the Web are of this category, but you should still look for this missing information: try clicking on the image, and/or looking at the bottom of the image.

    [Subject and type of work]. Retrieved Month Day, Year, from: URL (address of web site)

    The following format will be used:

    In-Text Citation (Paraphrase) -entry that appears in the body of your paper when you express the ideas of a researcher or author using your own words.  For more tips on paraphrasing check out The OWL at Purdue.

    In-Text Citation (Quotation) -entry that appears in the body of your paper after a direct quote.

    References - entry that appears at the end of your paper.

    Information on citing and several of the examples were drawn from theAPA Manual (6th ed.).
