This wall map utilizes the latest digital cartography ensuring a highly accurate and detailed map, yet incorporates a centuries-old traditional cartographic style. This oversized political map incorporates an 'antique ocean' color scheme, which refers to the ocean colors shaded to a parchment color. Elements such as softly shaded borders, antique ocean coloring, and a subdued, earthy color palette all are a nod to the era of exploration and what are now antique or historical maps. Crisp digital cartography & excellent shaded relief reflect the convergence of technology and traditional cartographic design. The stylish and politically current world map features thousands of place names, national and state capitals, international and state boundaries. Countries are delineated in solid blocks of color and boundaries are further defined with 'soft borders' which refers to the graduated color from the border of the country inward -- which again is an acknowledgement to the appearance of early 'Age of Exploration' maps. Extensive labeling throughout enhances the capabilities of this map as a valuable reference. A modern Van Der Grinten Projection is used. Current political map from Globe Turner Publishing includes all cartographic changes up to 2018.
