A wall map with a satellite image of Antarctica, size: 79 x 51cm - encapsulated version, from the National Geographic Society, with hill-shading to present the terrain and many peaks, glaciers and research stations. In 1997, in a joint project conducted by the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and NASA, the satellite Radarsat I imaged the Antarctic in its entirety. The resulting data enabled researchers to fill in the gaps on existing maps. Annotated to briefly present topics such as ice sheet thickness, winds and ice flow velocity. Latitude and longitude lines are overprinted on the map. Projection: Azimuthal Equidistant.

*This map is also available on paper without the encapsulation.

*LAMINATED and ENCAPSULATED WALL MAPS:*
- *laminated* wall maps have a thin layer of plastic usually applied to the printed side only. They can be written on with suitable marker pens without any damage to the map but, unless laminated on both sides, they are not damp-proof.

- *encapsulated* wall maps are sealed between two sheets of plastic. They are more rigid and heavier than laminated maps of the same size. They are damp-proof and do not crinkle in humid conditions. Encapsulation gives the map a shiny surface, similar to being displayed behind glass.

- *please note:* many publishers and retailers often use these two terms interchangeably. Our map titles and descriptions follow the definitions provided above.
