Detailed Map of the World Wall Mural:
Our White World Map Wall Decal is named after the famous Geographer, Alexander von Humboldt.
The map features an adhesive backed, removable fabric material that can be applied directly on a wall. Better than wallpaper, the wall decal is easy to apply and re-position. The map can be removed from the wall at any time by just peeling it off.
About the Map:

In the map - you can find the deepest point in the ocean; the tallest peaks on each continent; and follow the flows of the ocean currents. Explore the map to find over 100 special sites on the map (marked in blue/green) and learn about historical events around the world.

The map is created using a combination of satellites and developed entirely using numbers, measurements, and GIS software.
We use the USGS LandSat satellite to visualize the landscape on land and NOAA's bathemetry data to visualize the elevation and topography of the sea floor. The famous Space Shuttle Radiometric Topographic Mission, SRTM Data, is used to gather the elevation height for the land. With the data, we applied a hill shade to visualize the shading effects (at 3 p.m. every where on Earth). This is most visible in the largest mountain regions around the world.
