Laminated, 198.5 x 123.5cm (6ft 6’’ x 4ft approx.) version of the extra large political map of the world from Maps International, with countries shown in bright vivid colours against light blue oceans. Country names are in large, clearly legible print. English versions of all city names are used throughout. Within USA, Canada and Brazil internal state or provincial boundaries are indicated. Central Pacific, from Alaska/Siberia to New Zealand, is repeated on both sides of the map for better presentation of that region.
The map has well designed relief shading to show the mountainous areas like the Rockies or the Andes, enhancing the overall presentation. The colouring of the oceans also shows different depths. Projection is Van der Grinten. Clocks show time difference from GMT (but without the map indicating the exact geographical area covered by each time zone). Unlike the three smaller sizes of this map, this extra large version comes without the panel of flags, but includes part of the coast of the Antarctic.
* This 1:20,000,000 map is also available on paper or framed - mounted either on pin board or on magnetic board. The same design is also available in three smaller sizes - please click on the link above to see the full list of currently available titles.
*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.
