Full Answer

As of 2015, NationsOnline.org offers an online map of the entire continental United States. The lower 48 states are displayed along with state capitals and several major cities. Users can click on the state name or city name to access a more detailed map of the area, along with reference information and a brief history of the city or state. When clicking on a city, a satellite view of it appears. Alaska and Hawaii are not shown on the map, although information on these states is located in the "Maps of the 50 U.S. States" link.

The site YourChildLearns.com has an online graphic of all 50 states. However, the map does not display the name of each state on the screen. Users must scroll a mouse pointer over an individual state on the map to get the state name and its capital. This may be useful for students trying to memorize each state based on its shape and position. The site InfoPlease.com also has an online graphic of all 50 states. However, this map only provides the two-character abbreviations of each state.
