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 either the home, office or classroom. The map uses the Winkel tripel projection to reduce distortion of land masses as they near the poles. 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 the use of 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, there are smaller maps in the bottom corners showing population density, vegetation and land use.
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.
