Overview

National Geographic's World map is the standard by which all other reference maps are measured. The World map is meticulously researched and adheres to National Geographic's convention of making independent, apolitical decisions based on extensive research using multiple authoritative source.


The signature Classic style map uses a bright, easy to read color palette featuring blue oceans and stunning shaded relief that has been featured on National Geographic wall maps for over 75 years. Drawn in the Winkel Tripel projection, distortions are minimized and unlike many other World maps, Greenland is show the same size as Argentina and not as the size of all of South America.


Thousands of place names are carefully and artistically placed on the map to maintain legibility even in the heavily populated areas of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Details include clearly defined international boundaries, cities, physical features, rivers, and ocean floor features. Corner inset maps feature vegetation and land use, and population density as well as the north and south polar regions.


Enlarged maps provide an immersive experience in any home or office environment. The exceptional cartography is even easier to appreciate at the larger size. The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the frames can be much lighter and less expensive.


Please note: This item is not available for shipment outside of the U.S. and Canada.

      When we travel, we send our G-kids and G-G-Kids cards. They find it on the map and pin it just as our own map is pinned. It is a great tool to identify places that are in the news of peril in other countries

              Comments about World Classic Wall Map, Enlarged and Laminated:

              Great product overall, the only complaint I have is that the fonts seem a bit big, I would prefer a smaller font and thiner borders.

              But other then that, I have no complaints what so ever. The map is very sharp and clear, big enough to cover one side of my home office. I've always had a world map in my office and this new replacement does not dissapoint!

                Comments about World Classic Wall Map, Enlarged and Laminated:

                Product is attractive if made properly. First map had small bug laminated into the atlantic ocean, and wrinkles in lamination. Good return policy and people. Secoand map also had small bug laminated in it, this time in alaska, there were also wrinkles in the laminate. I bought this same product some years ago and the weight of the paper was much better. Needs quality controll and better materials.

                  My daughter FINALLY became curious about her world. Where are all these countries they talk about in the news? Where are those cities, those mountains those ancient monuments, those....? Now she's plugged into places & ideas she never thought about before. Plus the huge size of the map covers up some drywall dings in her room!

                  Don't yield to political pressure

                  Comments about World Classic Wall Map, Enlarged and Laminated:

                  In 1998, I bought a same map (smaller size) where Taiwan has a capital (mark star) called Taipei. China also has a capital (mark star) called Beijing. Right now, both Taipei and Beijing are still capitals. This is a fact. But to my extreme disappointment, the new map put Taipei as a city, not a capital. Do you surrender to China's pressure? Why? The map should show the fact, not your political surrender.
