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.


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

Looks great. Countries and states are still a bit small but I blame that on the ocean being so big since its scaled.

      Got this for my son and I to look at, study, and use as training. As a geography major, I know the importance of a good map. It sure helps when teaching my son about the world - a globe just doesn't do it for him any longer. Nat Geo maps are the best there is.
