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.

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.
This is a great map with just enough detail and color to fill my space above the desk.
although this "executive" national geographic map is filled with contemporary locations of cities and countries, etc., i got it because it also has physical details over the ocean, which is really cool.
