Political World Map - Atlas of the World, 11th Edition - Compact

National Geographic

This political world map is featured in the National Geographic Atlas of the World, 11th Edition. Showcasing the Earth in stunning detail with state-of-the-art cartographic techniques delivering accuracy and exceptional quality, the innovative and engaging design makes the content easily accessible and pleasing to the eye.

The Political World Map provides a detailed geographic view of national and regional boundaries, depicting current political realities across all continents. It uses a bright, easy to read color palette featuring blue oceans and stunning shaded relief that has been featured on National Geographic wall maps for over 75 years. Drawn in the Winkel Tripel projection, distortions of land masses around the poles are minimized: unlike many other World maps, Greenland is accurately shown as the same size as Argentina and not the size of all of South America.

Thousands of place names are carefully placed on the map to maintain legibility even in the heavily populated areas of Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Details include clearly defined international boundaries, cities, physical features, rivers, and ocean floor features. Corner inset maps feature the north and south polar regions.
