This unique view employs a new map projection to accentuate the Pacific Rim, and shows Oceania and Asia in close proportion to their actual size on the Earth. It brings Oceania and Asia into the center of the picture, while dramatically showing the entire breadth of the Pacific Ocean. The Pacific-centered world map features classic National Geographic cartography, with political boundaries, thousands of place names, time zones, and special insets showing world vegetation and land use, and population density. It is also available in the Executive-antique version.
Map is printed on premium quality paper stock, laminated, rolled, and packaged in a clear plastic sleeve.
