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 Executive style World map uses an antique-style color palette and stunning shaded relief that provide a richness perfect for any decor. 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.


Poster sized maps make a perfect addition to any sized space. They are specially designed to maximize content in a smaller footprint than standard wall maps and fit precisely into precut poster sized frames which makes finishing and hanging them a breeze. 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. This poster-sized version is laminated—featuring a "write and wipe" surface and durable plastic covering.

      Comments about World Executive Wall Map, Poster Size and Laminated:

      I bought this online after looking at maps at the book store. They had a rally mckinley map which had no details, and this one ( but a different size)... This map is defiantly detailed. I bought the laminated one, glued it to a poster board, and framed it. Bought map pins to mark cities we have been to. It's now sitting in my living room. Beautiful color. It's pretty up to date, except missing north and south Sudan.
      Bought this as a birthday gift for my travel.crazy husband.
