Time Zone Maps
Depending on where on Earth you are located, your time zone will be different from those on the other side of the world. If you are in the U.S., your time zone may be different from your family in another state and sometimes even within the same state. Time zone maps were created as an easy reference for those needing to know the time in other areas.
Those who travel or do business with people in other countries may need to consult a time zone map frequently. You may have a friend in France and need to know a good time to call her. It may be early in the a.m. at your location but late in the evening at hers. Online time zone maps are easy to use and a very quick reference for finding out the time in other countries. Some websites offer clickable images that will display time zone and other important information about the area.
