National Geographic Maps
North America Classic [Enlarged and Satin Ready-to-Hang] (National Geographic Reference Map)
From the far northern reaches of the Arctic Sea to the Isthmus of Panama, this Classic style political map of North America features trademark National Geographic detail and accuracy. The bright color palette features blue oceans and stunning shaded relief that has been a signature of National Geographic wall maps for over 75 years. Political boundaries are clearly defined, and place names, airports, major roadways, and other geographical features are easy to read. In addition to Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Central America, coverage includes Iceland, Greenland, the island nations of the Caribbean, Venezuela, and most of Colombia. An inset map shows the Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska.
Enlarged maps provide an immersive experience in any home or office environment. The exceptional cartography is even easier to appreciate at the larger size. The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the frames can be much lighter and less expensive. Satin Lamination features glare-reducing qualities that provide a soft sheen. A satin finish is best suited for backdrop prints and displays receiving indirect, bright lighting.
Ready-to-Hang maps have rails at the top and the bottom to keep the map flat against the wall with two loops on the top rail for easy hanging. A package of wall hooks and nails completes the set.
