British Isles at 1:1,687,000 on a small wall map, 61 x 76cm (1’11” x 2’5” approx) - encapsulated version, from the National Geographic Society showing the constituent parts of the United Kingdom, Irish Republic, Isle of Man and the Channel Islands. Shetland Islands are shown on an inset.
The map uses NGS’s classic presentation style of white background plus relief shading to show the topography, with boundaries shown in colour. Within Great Britain, national parks are prominently highlighted. Names of many geographical regions are shown (The Wolds, South Downs, etc.); county boundaries are marked, but county names are indicated only by numbers cross-referenced to lists of counties and unitary authorities in England, with corresponding lists for Scotland, Wales, Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at intervals of 1°.
* This title 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.
