This beautiful map features physical geography of both the land and sea. The land features both elevation and landscape (terrain) features. Use the comprehensive referencing in the map to visualize all nations and major cities in the world. This map also features historical and significant destinations in the world. The map is a delight to explore and plan travels!
The oceanography is based on scientific data (using over 2 billion data points and NOAA bathymetry) showing the topography of the seafloor including the ocean ridges, plate tectonics, and more! The geography of the island formations and continental shelves are fascinating to explore!
Our Signature Map! The Nautilus Push Pin World Map is an impressive cartographic work of art and science. The map can be used as a push pin map (map pins are included) or as wall art. The map is created with Fine Art Materials.
About the Map: This inspirational map features a wealth of information about the geography and history of our diverse planet. We utilize terrain modeling to showcase elevation as well as landscape modeling to show which regions of the world are dry and which ones are tropical. The detailed information throughout this World Map is the result of years of geographic research and created by a professional Cartographer/Geographer.
In this map you can find the deepest point in the ocean, the tallest peaks on Earth, see the flows of the ocean currents, ancient civilizations, and historic commentary highlighting famous explorations and voyages around the World.
What's Included: 500 Map pins and pin case; Each map is individually made to order. We prepare the map with the hanging hardware so it's ready to use and enjoy. The map is nicely packaged and shipped in a large box.
Geographical Data: 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 bathymetry 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.
