Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the ranges of a few of the many thousands of insects, ticks and spiders species that are found in Canada. There are 20 maps showing the ranges of 52 separate species. Ranges depend on the distribution of suitable habitats and can be grouped into more or less well defined types. Consequently, because of limited space, the selection of species was confined to those which exemplify a range type or to those which were considered to be of general interest.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows 14 condensed maps including large scale selected areas, and smaller scaled maps of Canada. The six maps in the top left portion of this plate illustrate the number of pelts taken in the 1950/1951 furring season by province and territory for the following animals: wild beaver, wild and ranch raised mink, wild ermine, wild muskrat, wild and ranch raised fox, and wild squirrel. An additional summary map shows the pelts taken for all fur bearing animals in the 1950/1951 furring season. The map in the bottom left portion of this plate shows the distribution of fur farms, and the distribution of fur trading establishments.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a plate that shows 20 condensed maps with ranges of important inland fish of commercial value found within Canada. The ranges, for the most part, indicate present and usual distribution. Rare or occasional occurrences have not been shown. As there is still much to be learned about the fish species in some parts of Canada, some range limits are hypothetical.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows 20 condensed maps with the more popular game birds in Canada. The ranges, for the most part, indicate present and usual distribution. Rare or occasional occurrences have not been shown. As there is still much to be learned about the bird species in parts of northern Canada, some range limits are hypothetical.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map showing general distribution in nine condensed maps of the certain species of East Coast fish, mollusks, crustaceans, and indicates the areas of greatest catches and amounts taken for most species. These maps are based largely on statistics for landings of fish in 1952. The recorded ranges indicate where the various species are generally distributed.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows 20 condensed maps of tree species native to Canada. There are 171 different species, but many of these are of little or no commercial importance in addition to, in many cases, having a very restricted range. The maps on this plate show the ranges of the 35 species of economic importance. The range maps are similar to those used in the 1949 edition of Forestry Branch Bulletin 61, Native Trees of Canada.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the electrical generating network in Eastern Canada circa 1954. Generating plants are shown as either developed waterpower sites (in other words, hydro plants), or as fuel electric plants (thermal plants). The plants are portrayed on the basis of their capacity, measured in horsepower. The map also shows transmission lines of 60 000 volts or higher.

Contained within the 3rd Edition (1957) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows 20 condensed maps with only mammals that are well-known to Canada. The ranges, for the most part, indicate present and usual distribution. The rare or occasional occurrences have not been shown. As there is still much to be learned about the fauna in parts of northern Canada, some range limits are hypothetical.
