World Classic Wall Map
The signature World Classic wall map uses a bright, easy to read colour 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 minimised unlike many other World maps.
National Geographic’s World Maps are meticulously researched and adhere to their convention of making independent, apolitical decisions based on extensive research using multiple authoritative sources.
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.
This map is available in various sizes and options. For a larger version, the World Classic Mural is unsurpassed.
