Greenland itself doesn’t change much, but we undertook a major review of the artwork and spent weeks organizing the digital files and replacing a tremendous amount of text. Georeferencing is really coming into its own!
This map is sharper, with fjords and ‘green’ areas more correctly shown, contours more visible, and place names properly aligned. That, in itself, would be noteworthy, but we have added a brand new map to the previously blank ‘backside’ of the paper.
This is the first-ever commercially available map of the North Pole and surrounding regions north of 60 degrees. Thanks to a marvellous effort by the National Atlas people at Natural Resources Canada, who compiled and prepared this map as their contribution to the International Scientific Year of the Polar Ice 2009, we are proud to be supplementing their beautiful map by marketing it internationally.
The polar regions, both the Arctic and the Antarctic, are severely affected by global warming, and ITMB is very pleased to be the first and only cartographic firm in the world to bring you maps of both polar extremes, and in the same year as well. This is a beautiful map, that really deserves its own separate sheet, but economic times being as they are, combining it with Greenland is a good option.
We can laminate this map, which will allow you to draw on it in whiteboard marker or apply map dots to locations of interest without permanently marking the map. The lamination also makes the map very durable and protects against tears and stains.
To laminate this map we have taken the folded map and flattened it out before encapsulating it in high-quality 80-micron laminate, so please be aware that there will still be slight fold lines visible.
