Impressive and informative environmental maps of the world which very successfully combine physical relief with various vegetation or terrain coloring and well displayed names of countries and their boundaries.
Excellent relief shading presents the mountainous areas in almost 3-D effect. Peak symbols help to identify the highest mountain on each continent or in various countries.
18 different combinations of coloring and graphics show various types of vegetation and terrain: tundra and glaciers or ice caps; coniferous, mixed or rain forests; savannah, grassland or steppe; sand or rocky deserts, lava fields and salt lakes, arable land, etc.
Country names and their boundaries are clearly displayed, with town symbols indicating national and, where possible, state or provincial capitals. Within USA, Canada, Brazil and Australia state or provincial boundaries are also shown.
On oceans, in addition to different shades of coloring, numerous depth figures are provided. Central Pacific, from Siberia/Alaska to New Zealand, is repeated on both sides of the maps for better presentation of that region.
Clocks indicate time difference from GMT (but without the maps showing the exact geographical area covered by each time zone). Projection is Van der Grinten.
This map is supplied with high quality metal hanging strips making it very easy to hang on a wall.
