It's GeoJango's mission to create fascinating maps to help people learn more about the world.

Maps have the unique ability to draw people in using spatial dimensions and visualization. Our maps are designed to make exploring the geography of the Earth's lands and oceans fun and fascinating.

 

Extraordinary Geographic Details in Every Map

In our World Maps, one can visualize the depths of the oceans, ridges, and basins. GIS technology is used to illustrate the geography of our world and landscapes including deserts, rain forests, and mountains.

We use satellite data to accurately show the elevation from the seafloor to the tallest peaks. We use the MODIS satellite in the month of February to illustrate the snow and ice coverage of Earth - as seen in the northern hemisphere and along Canada and Russia.

We include fascinating references to discover in every continent and country. We include historical events both heroic and tragic. We include facts about explorers and their epic voyages. We point out significant landmarks throughout the world that are important for geographic awareness.

Use our wall maps and push pin maps for business, home and office decor. Our maps are designed to impress everyone - from our smallest maps to our GIANT wall maps.

 

Professional Cartography and Geographical Science is our Passion

Our maps are created by a highly skilled professional with backgrounds in Environmental Science, Geography, History, Education, Computer Science, and Graphic Design.  

 

Made in the USA

Every map and geogrpahy game is made-to-order, rather than being mass-produced. We use all USA Materials and strive to support other USA companies. We purchase moldings for our frames from small business factories in Alabama and the State of New York. A factory in Stockton, California transforms the moldings into frames - exclusively for our maps.

 

Our Location

GeoJango is located in Pleasanton, California, which is about 30 miles east of San Francisco.

Why Maps?  We think of maps as windows to the world. They provide a context for understanding cultural, environmental, and physical patterns and relationships in the world. We like how maps provide spatial context and serve as a visual tool for learning. Traveling the world provides an opportunity to learn and experience the essence of Earth!
