GeoJango is dedicated to creating beautiful and informative maps. For your home and your business.

We are a printer, an art company, a marketing company, and a retailer. We are a geography company that loves creating amazing maps. As Geographers and GIS Scientists, we have researched and made thousands of maps. We know the difference between a poorly-made and a well-made map. The map projection, referencing, oceanography, features, colors, and style in the map all matter. We think you will enjoy a lifetime of value found in our maps.

We would love the opportunity to share our passion for geography with your team or your customers. We go to great lengths to perfect the details in every map. You may not notice every detail at first, but over the years, they will guide you to a wealth of information.

In Pleasanton, California, we created the nation’s best Map Production Center. Here, our talented and skilled team creates museum-quality, handcrafted, fine artwork, uniquely for you!

Purchasing a map from a small USA business is a great way to invest in craftsmanship, skilled expertise, and our country. It’s a decision that connects you to our dedicated team, while we work to make a difference in the world, supporting the spirit of entrepreneurship.

So, the next time you’re giving gifts to your staff, looking to decorate your office or other work space, or expanding your store’s product line, consider the unique, handcrafted maps offered by our small business — we know that you and your team will be delighted with our products for years to come.

 

Extraordinary Geographic Details in Every Map

In our Push Pin 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, rainforests, and mountains.

We use satellite data to accurately show the elevation from the seafloor to the tallest peaks. We use the MODIS satellite in 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.

Learn about the USA in our series of USA and National Parks Maps

Using GIS data directly from the NPS GIS Department, we sorted and organized the data, as only a GIS professional can do, into a series of categories that is easy to understand and reference. You will see the National Park categories in our color-coded Legend Key on our USA National Park Pin Maps.

Professional Cartography and Geographical Science is our Passion

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

 

Made in the USA

Every map and geography 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, Ohio, and the State of New York. Our frames are made in Stockton, California. The moldings are made into high-quality handcrafted frames - exclusively for our maps.

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!
