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.

Details

  • 43.5" x 30.5"

This is a beautiful world map

Comments about World Classic Wall Map:

I would like the same map laid out as if I could cut it out and wrap the pieces on a sphere and create my own world globe. The plan is to use a map like this as a pattern to create each political area in glass, then attach each together to form a stained glass globe.

        Comments about World Classic Wall Map:

        Our family loves maps, preferred over the latest electronic technology. Great teaching tool. Our kids are now grown with kids of their own. This map is a great go-to resource when world events occur. We can easily find where the events are occurring and see how these events affect surrounding countries.

                Pretty much what I wanted. Would get a third larger map next time. Print is a little small for these 65 year old eyes.

                  Did a lot of research before selecting this map for father's day present for my husband's office wall. We liked that it is up-to-date and includes many different cities, compared to others we looked at. Inset maps at sides are interesting too.
