National Geographic’s wall map of the physical world highlights the planet’s geographical diversity with subtle earth-tones for land masses, shaded relief, and stunning sea floor topography in vibrant shades of blue. Detailed and accurate, this map features the Winkel Tripel projection to reduce distortion of land masses as they near the poles. Separate insets show the North and South polar regions. The World Tectonics inset details the features, motion, and notable historical activity along the earth’s plates and the World Climate inset shows the diverse climate regions and ocean currents. Elevations of major peaks are expressed in feet and depth soundings are expressed in meters.
