April 15, 2012, marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. National Geographic Explorer-in-Residence Robert Ballard discovered the wreck in 1985, and the Society is marking the anniversary with a commemorative map and a host of special events. National Geographic’s Titanic 100th Anniversary mapa two-sided infographictells the story of the Titanic from a geographic perspective. Using diagrams, photographs, and information on the ship, its passengers, and its history, the map details the ship’s fateful route of 1912 and the shipping lanes before and after the disaster; the journey of the fateful iceberg; charts and statistics from the official hearings; an inset locating ice and rescue ships; deep-ocean diagrams of the search process; and Titanic-related points of interest. The ship diagram side of the map features color-coded deck plans; a cutaway view and escape routes; portraits of noted passengers and crew lost and saved; Titanic’s size compared to the world’s largest objects; and the debate over her future. Each map is printed in the U.S. on high-quality 80# paper, printed with environmentally-friendly low VOC inks.
