This is the replacement map for our former Papua New Guinea map. It has a similar cover picture, but for this edition, we have added the rest of the island, the Indonesian province of West Irian, to the other side of the paper, creating a complete island map (much as we did with Borneo and Dominican Republic/Haiti).
This map also includes some of the islands west of New Guinea, including the newly independent country of East Timor (not in great detail, but it’s there). Naturally, the Papua side has been updated cartographically and is MUCH more developed than the western side, but to me, the real significance of this title is that one of the largest islands in the world is now completely mapped for the first time ever.
This is the first new map of West Irian province for years and adds interesting Indonesian islands from the Ceram Sea area, such as Anbom and Hatta to ITM’s detailed coverage of Indonesia. Printed on paper, double-sided.
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.
