Size: 136.5 x 85.5cm / 4ft 5’’ x 2ft 10” approx.
Encapsulated, large (136.5 x 85.5cm / 4ft 5’’ x 2ft 10” approx.), impressive and informative physical map of the world which very successfully combines physical relief with vegetation or terrain colouring and well displayed names of countries and their boundaries.

Excellent relief shading presents the mountainous areas in almost 3-D effect. Peak symbols help to identify the highest mountain on each continent or in various countries. 18 different combinations of colouring and graphics show various types of vegetation and terrain: tundra and glaciers or ice caps; coniferous, mixed or rain forests; savannah, grassland or steppe; sand or rocky deserts, lava fields and salt lakes, arable land, etc.

Country names and their boundaries are clearly displayed, with town symbols indicating national and, where possible, state or provincial capitals. Within USA, Canada, Brazil and Australia state or provincial boundaries are also shown.

On oceans, in addition to different shades of colouring, numerous depth figures are provided. Central Pacific, from Siberia/Alaska to New Zealand, is repeated on both sides of the map for better presentation of that region. Clocks indicate time difference from GMT (but without the maps showing the exact geographical area covered by each time zone). Projection is Van der Grinten.

* This map is also available on paper or with hanging strips, plus in a larger size (198 x 123cm / 6ft 6’’ x 4ft approx.), on paper or encapsulated - please click on the link above to see the full list of currently available titles.

- *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.
