Comments about World Political Map (Earth-toned), Mounted:
This was a gift and my biggest hesitation in ordering was that the online picture showed a map with a copyright of 2007. That would be find for a geographical only map - but not one with countries whose borders have changed or new countries have been created. I went ahead and ordered anyway as I could find nothing similar that was more up to date. But the map I received in has a print date of 2015(!) - so it is possible that these maps are created when you order. The gift recipient loves it and he says that is has the newest country in the world on the map so I have no regrets.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
From National Geographic:Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We are delighted to hear that your gift recipient is happy with this map. Please note that we do not change copyright dates as maps are ordered. This map actually has a copyright date of 2015. The 2007 version is out of print and no longer available. Our website had the old copyright, which is now being updated. We appreciate your bringing this matter to our attention.
