Overview

The United States Explorer map is a classic example of the cartographic excellence National Geographic is known for. This colorful political map clearly shows state boundaries, capitals, major highways, rivers, lakes, and many major cities. Insets show detail of Alaska and Hawaii. The color palette is vibrant and stunning shaded relief provides additional texture and detail.


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.

    Comments about United States Explorer Wall Map, Laminated:

    I use the US State map to reinforce what my kids are learning in school. I've posted it on the wall in the kitchen where we eat dinner and use it to talk about current affairs and locations of friends, relatives and weather events. The distinct colors make it easy for even a 5yr old to have fun participating.
