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.


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 World Classic Wall Map, Laminated:

I am in the airfreight business and wanted to get updated maps for my office. I chose the right source. The only thing that I now regret is that I didn't get the next largest size.

      Comments about World Classic Wall Map, Laminated:

      I love this map! It's great for following the locations in books and historical stories. Large and easy to read, beautiful to look at, the map is wonderful! The only problem I've had is that it's a bit unwieldy because it keeps wanting to roll back up on itself because of the laminate. On the other hand one of the best things about the map is the lamination, which makes it virtually indestructible. And did I mention this Nat Geo Map is Beautiful?!

      Comments about World Classic Wall Map, Laminated:

      I use the map to keep track of our bucket list travels, using map pins of different colors for where I/we've been and where we want to go. The laminated map had to be mounted on foam core to stop it curling, and allow pin use. It was expensive for what it is. The type/general dimensions could usefully have been larger, it's difficult to read. Recommend a 4 x 6 foot range size for easier use.
