Size: 81.5 x 51cm / 32" x 20" approx.
National Geographic Society’s Explorer Executive political maps of the world, 81.5 x 51cm / 32" x 20" approx., in the publishers’ very popular style which offers current information presented in elegant antique style. Countries are in rich but muted colours and oceans in beige, with additional panels and framing in shades of brown.

An unusual feature of this series is the excellent presentation of the ocean floor, with impressive relief shading to show the continental shelf around the land masses and numerous ridges. Unfortunately, although clear and very effective on all the sizes of this design, the sample presented here cannot do full justice to such fine detail (also see below).

On land, the map has relief shading with names of main mountain ranges. Heights for peaks are given in feet. Within USA, Canada and Australia boundaries and names of states/provinces are shown. All place names are in their English versions. Three insets provide lists of 15 largest countries by area and by population, plus 15 largest urban areas. Projection is Winkel Tripel, which reduces distortion of land masses as they near the poles.

* *PLEASE NOTE:* similar design in three larger sizes, so with more effective presentation of the relief on land and particularly of the ocean floor is available in the National Geographic Society "Executive" Political Maps of the World series.
