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 map an excellent reference tool for home, office or classroom.
The map uses a Pacific centred projection of the World, which gives a different interpretation of the standard world map that is typically Africa centred.
Unlike other political maps, the country borders are shown by a heavy coloured die line and the interior of the country is shown in white, making it easier to read the place names and information. Mountain ranges are shown in great detail through the use of shaded relief as well as showing ocean depths and currents.
The sheer amount of information on this map is impressive; smaller maps in the bottom corners show population density, vegetation, and land uses.
This fantastic map comes with traditional hard laminate; you can also use our Mark-It-Dots to show where you have been.
The easiest way to hang your 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.
The map uses the Winkel tripel projection to reduce distortion of land masses as they near the poles.
Size 1100 mm (w) x 780 mm (h)
Note: Please allow ten working days for delivery as hang rails need to be attached by our framer.
