One of our most popular and accurate world maps is now available in our rich, antique-inspired Executive style. Contains up-to-date place names including Sri Lanka’s new capital Sri Jayawadenapura Kotte.
The World Explorer Executive uses the Winkel-Tripel Map Projection, which strikes the best balance of accuracy, aesthetics, and proportion, eliminating the issue found in many other maps where Greenland appears larger than South America.
Map features include: accurate political boundaries and place names, time zone chart, latitude and longitude grids, and three inset tables with the world’s largest countries by size and population, and the population of the world’s largest urban areas.
The World Explorer Executive Wall Map is printed on high-quality paper suitable for framing.

I was looking for a global map to use both as a reference and wall decor, but didn't want a huge wall map. This one is perfect, I love the neutral beige background that blends in with my decor. It will go on the wall as soon as I find a frame to protect it. It appears very detailed; I will need a magnifying glass to read the smallest writing since my eyes aren't what they used to be!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
