Japan NGS Executive Style Wall Map from the National Geographic, size 63.5 x 74cm (25" x 29" approx) – encapsulated version, designed to present current information in colouring reminiscent of antique maps, with shades of beige and brown.
The Ryukyu Islands are shown on an inset at the same scale as the main islands, with another panel covering the outer groups in the Pacific. Division of the country into prefectures is presented on a base with subtle, light relief shading to indicate the topography, names of main mountain ranges, plus peak heights both in metres and feet. National parks are prominently highlighted. The map shows the country’s road and rail networks, indicating high speed lines, and airports with schedules services. All place names are shown transliterated. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 2° intervals.
Please note: this title is also available encapsulated. The same information is also presented on the NGS Classic style wall maps of Japan.
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.
