Award winning political wall map of the world at 1:30,000,000 from Global Mapping, size 134 x 76.5 cm (53" x 30" approx) – paper version, in an antique style of presentation with the countries in pleasant subdued colours and the oceans with graphics to show the ridges, etc. A useful enlargement presents Europe in greater clarity.

Countries are presented in pleasant subdued colours against the oceans in light beige. Current edition of this map shows South Sudan. Country names are in their English versions; cities are in the language of the country so Warszawa, Wien, Al Qahira, etc. In USA, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and Australia boundaries and names of the states/provinces are marked. This larger version of the map shows more place names than on its smaller size at 1:40,000,000.

The map shows main road and rail connections and principal airports. Land masses have subtle relief shading with names of important geographical features and largest mountains. Graphic relief shows the ocean floor with ridges, trenches, etc.

Polar Regions are presented on insets. Another panel provides an enlargement of Europe for greater clarity. Latitude and longitude lines are at 15° intervals. Clocks indicate change in local time from GMT at 60° intervals of longitude and an up-to-date International Date Line is marked. The map is drawn on the Robinson projection. An unusual feature of this title is an analemma indicating latitude and the day of the year when the sun is directly overhead.

The map, which is also available in a smaller size at 1:40,000,000, is a winner of the British Cartographic Society’s 2013 best map award sponsored by Stanfords, with a citation “Judges found the entry to encompass what should be seen in good cartography, with its ‘Old Map’ feel, it is easy on the eye and unique in its presentation.”
