National Geographic's best-selling world map.
National Geographic's Classic World Map features the Winkel Tripel projection to reduce distortion of land masses as they near the poles. This creates the most visually accurate representation of Earth's land-masses, versus other projections. The Classic series includes blue oceans, easy-to-read colorful boundaries, and National Geographic's proprietary fonts. Up-to-date and very detailed, this map is perfect for home, business, or classroom.
