This Advanced World political map from Academia Maps utilizes Gall's Orthographic projection and is ideal for teaching world geography or world history lessons to students in grades 6 through 12. This map was designed using the Gall Orthographic projection, which is an equal-area map projection that accurately depicts the sizes of countries in relation each other. The Gall Orthographic projection map has been adopted for use by UNESCO, OXFAM, numerous British schools, and recently by Boston Public Schools. It is considered a good alternative to the commonly used Mercator projection which increasingly inflates the sizes of countries the further you move from the equator. This is most noticeably observed with Greenland appearing larger than Africa on a Mercator map despite being 14 times smaller.
The Gall world map maintains correct sizes and proportions of continents, providing us with an alternative view of the world not found on traditional school maps.
The map features countries displayed in bright contrasting colors with political boundaries outlined. Countries, national capital cities, major cities and U.S. states are clearly labeled. Also features rivers, lakes, seas, mountain ranges, deserts, basins, and latitude/longitude lines. Map also features detailed shaded relief. Politically up-to-date with the latest changes.
