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 Decorator style World map uses a vibrant color palette that fills each country for easy identification and stunning shaded relief that will stand out as a beautiful piece of cartographic artistry. 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 ares 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.

      Dimensions Listed are Incorrect!!

      Comments about World Decorator Wall Map:

      Ordered this map and then ordered a custom size frame and matboard (from a different site) to mount the map. I ordered a 30x46 frame and matboard, to match the dimensions listed in the product reviews. Once I received the map, I tried to frame it. The map was too large! I measured the edges of the map only to find that it's 30.5" x 46 inches, not 30x46! Now I have to painstakingly trim 1/4 inch from the map sides for it to fit in the custom frame. Please, National Geographic, list your dimensions precisely!

        First time when I received the map, the package broken on the mailing process, I called National Geographic Customer service, and they send new one to me, without charge me money.
        Thank you for your perfect product and customer service.
