The World Executive wall map uses an antique-style colour palette and stunning shaded relief that provide a richness perfect for any decor. Drawn in the Winkel Tripel projection, distortions are minimised and unlike many other World maps, Greenland is show the same size as Argentina and not as the size of all of South America.
National Geographic’s World Wall 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 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.
National Geographic wall maps offer special glimpses into current and historical events, and inform map readers about our world and our environment. Offered in a variety of styles and formats, our maps of the world, continents, countries, regions, history, nature, and space are all excellent reference tools that make a perfect addition to any home, office, or school. National Geographic wall maps are printed on high-quality paper and are suitable for framing.
