Large Extreme Raised Relief Map of Africa - Relief Technik - Vintage New Old Stock

Large, flexible, vinyl map depicting the continent of Africa and the Middle East.

Made in Germany by Ernst Knoll founded Relief-Technik (now Geo-Institut), this beautiful map is the largest we've seen of its kind. Rubbery material comes back to its original shape, so raised relief contours are highly resistant to dents and damage that can occur with typical vacuum-formed raised maps. Rich coloration and dramatic raised relief create a stunning display. Map features wood slats on top and bottom for easy hanging. Rolls into a tube for transport.

Dimensions: 4'10" x 4'8" (58" x 56")
  • Physical features identified  include: Rivers, lakes, mountain ranges & peaks, deserts. Major seas, bays, and straits. Major cities and countries.
  • Colorful topographic shading and ocean bathymetry w/ elevation & sea depth legend.
  • Roll-able raised relief map produced from durable flexible vinyl.
  • Can be used as a wall map or floor map - standing on the map will not damage it.

This exaggerated raised relief map of  Africa is new off-the-shelf vintage stock and is not politically up-to-date. These maps are no longer in production. It is an excellent educational product for teaching physical geography.
