The World Map by the National Geographic Society is a current political map that shows our world in traditional blue colours. The maps' astounding detail and quality make this an excellent reference tool for either the home, office or classroom.
Unlike other political maps the country boarders are shown by use of coloured die lines and the interior of the country is shown in white, making it easier to read the place names and other information. Mountain ranges are shown in great detail through the use of shaded relief and the map also focuses on accenting ocean depths and currents in greater detail than on any other world map.
The sheer amount of information on this map is impressive, there are smaller maps in the bottom corners showing population density, vegetation and land uses.
The small and large maps comes in a special low sheen laminate, which makes them very durable, you can also use our Mark-It-Dots to show where you have been. The mural is comprised of three heavy duty paper sheets that are designed to be hung as wallpaper, though they can also be laminated and framed.
The map uses the Winkel tripel projection to reduce distortion of land masses as they near the poles.
The small and large sizes come in two projections, either Africa centred or Pacific centred, the Mural however only comes Africa centred.
The map comes in a range of sizes:
