National Geographic Maps
National Geographic is one of the most respected world authorities on cartography. For 100 years, the society has been producing state-of-the-art political, physical and thematic maps. The organization's cartographers utilize contemporary digital mapping techniques to inform the geography of these highly detailed maps. Since 1998, National Geographic has officially adopted the Winkel Tripel Map Projection to try to mediate spatial distortion on their products. The well-respected society aims to create products that "inspire people to care about and explore the world" by exhaustively researching the planet and holding all of their maps to exacting standards for cartographic excellence. National Geographic's commitment to creating accurate maps has secured and upheld their stellar reputation over their long history.
The NG map is very well made and easy to read however not easy to hang up. The size and lamination make it a problem even for frame shops. Just something to keep in mind
Product was exactly what we wanted. The laminating makes it durable. And it is easy to read.
This is a classic map. National Geographic's cartography is renowned the world over and it's easy to see why. These are beautifully made maps and I'm quite pleased with mine.
