What is the name of the map that is like a legend, but in actual map form? It's a fictional map that shows all of the features being shown (usually in an atlas) and usually has mountains on one side and ocean on the other.

I can't remember the name of these maps and it is driving me crazy!

natural legend. Definitely; a natural legend.
Admittedly, it is hardly "natural", but what really is?
I think I have also seen it labeled a 'sample map' on some actual maps.
