NEW YORK (June 1, 2007)–During the 1930s and 1940s, several National Geographic world maps were designed using a projection that separated the Eastern and Western hemispheres. National Geographic returns to this classic view of the world with its latest release, the World Hemispheres map that features updated, modern cartography and an elegant earth-tone color palette.
Perfect for home, office or classroom, this stunning wall map is printed on premium paper suitable for framing or laminated for durability. The map measures 42.75″ x 24.5.” Prices range from $12.99 to $24. Book Expo attendees can preview the World Hemispheres map at the National Geographic Maps booth #4517.
The World Hemispheres map includes four views of the world: the Eastern and Western hemispheres and the Northern and Southern polar regions.
National Geographic has been mapping the world for more than a century. The first maps appeared in the October 1889 edition of National Geographic magazine. Since then, National Geographic Maps has produced maps that track current events, give special glimpses into historical events, and inform us about our world and our environment.
National Geographic Maps was established as a division of the National Geographic Society in 1915 and produces maps for National Geographic magazine and other Society groups. National Geographic Maps produces Trails Illustrated maps, TOPO! outdoor recreation mapping software, globes, wall maps, reference maps, state maps, city and recreational destination maps, professional software and atlases.
