NGS Classic political map of the world, poster size 91 x 61cm (36" x 24" approx) – paper version, with the publishers’ characteristic lay-out providing an attractive alternative to the more conventional world maps, countries in white but defined by different colour borders, oceans in bright blue, plus interesting additional features.

All place names are in the English versions. On land subtle relief shading is added to show the topography; peak heights are given in feet. Within USA, Canada and Australia internal state/provincial borders are marked. On the oceans depth are shown in metres and arrows indicate the direction of prevailing winds as well as of hot and cold currents, many shown with names. Four insets present the Arctic and the Antarctic, plus vegetation/land use and population density. Clocks show time difference from GMT (but without the map indicating the exact geographical area covered by each time zone). The map also includes a list of 10 largest countries by area and by populations. Projection is Winkel Tripel, which reduces distortion of land masses as they near the poles.

National Geographic’s “Classic” political maps of the world are available in different sizes and formats (paper, encapsulated or on pin board) plus Pacific-centred – TO SEE THE FULL RANGE OF TITLES IN THIS SERIES PLEASE CLICK ON THE SERIES LINK.
