Simon,
Cambridge ielts has an official guide this year. weird enough, the modal essay provided by the author about map writing does not describe a location by using words such as north or south, instead, the essay uses top left hand corner, or top right hand corner. now, it is very confusing. as far as I know, a map is different from a picture. does that mean that we need to use these phrases to describe a location from now on? how about office layout or floor diagrams?
many thanks for your answer.

@Jenny

I would write directions as North ,South if there is a compass illustration on the picture.

If there is no compass or icon showing North, I would use words such as 'at the top' , 'on the top right corner','on the ground level', to describe the location or direction of things.

@jenny

Sorry! Just ignore my reply,and search Simon's blog for the word 'map' using the search box on the right hand side of the page.The box is right above where it says 'Archives'.You can't miss it. I'm sure you will find your answers there. Cheers!

Note: It might seems strange that we use the word 'means' as a singular noun, but we do! e.g. Email is a means of communication.

Jenny,

I still prefer 'north, south...' for maps.
