About National Geographic Maps

Classic Wall Map

Maps have been a cornerstone of National Geographic since they were published in the first issue of the magazine in October 1888. The year 1915 witnessed the founding of the Map Department, which evolved into today’s National Geographic Maps, one of the world's leading map publishers. 

As in the past, our cartographers continue to illustrate the world around us through the art and science of mapmaking. We adhere to this long-held mission by creating the world’s best wall maps, outdoor recreation maps, travel maps, atlases, globes, and map apps to help people understand and explore their world.

National Geographic Maps is part of a joint venture between The Walt Disney Company and the National Geographic Society. Every map purchase helps support the Society, an impact driven, nonprofit organization with global reach that uses the power of science, exploration, education, and storytelling to illuminate and protect the wonder of our world.

Our team of cartographers, editors, producers, and business people is located in Evergreen, Colorado.
