National Geographic's map features the countries bordering the "great inland sea" — the Mediterranean. Exquisitely detailed, this reference map contains hundreds of place-names, many shown with their commonly recognized conventional (English) names. Physical geography details include shaded relief and cartographic patterns used to depict sand, lava fields, and areas below sea level. Also included are the elevations of major peaks and ocean soundings, both expressed in meters. This map also features a detailed transportation network including highways, roads, high-speed passenger railroads, and major airports. The signature Classic style map uses a bright, easy to read colour palette featuring blue oceans and stunning shaded relief that has been featured on National Geographic wall maps for over 75 years.
The map can come either printed on heavyweight 160 gsm paper or laminated. The paper version is perfect for framing under glass, and the laminated version is exceptionally hard-wearing as we use a true encapsulation of two pieces of 80-micron gloss laminate.
Alternatively, we can supply this map on 395 gsm HP Professional Matte Canvas using pigment-based inks - making the map highly durable and fade resistant. The exceptional clarity of printing makes this map a stunning addition to any room, and its high quality means that it will provide years of enjoyment.
The easiest way to hang your canvas map is by having wooden hang rollers attached top and bottom with a hanging cord on the top roller, so all you have to do is put a hook in the wall. The hang rails come lacquered in a natural timber colour.
Note: Please allow 10 working days to deliver hang railed maps as they need to be attached by our framer.
