Caribbean Islands Map - New Vintage Style with Modern Geography

Description

Important: select the 'Map Finish', to see the available sizes in the next dropdown selection.

This map includes a special Certificate with a summary about the map.  

Our beautiful Caribbean Sea Map was created using both antique (old world) cartography methods and modern geography and scientific data! We used massive datasets that measured the depth of the seafloor and land elevations to create the map. In this map you can explore the pattern of the seafloor - noting the deepest depths, the oceanic current patterns, and island formation in the Caribbean.  

The cartographic design includes rhumb lines that illustrate directions and distances in the map. Rhumb lines add a geometric design element that provides an organized grid layout that assisted navigators in their sailing. The map includes a very special compass that was inspired by a design back in 1450s when elaborate colors and concentric designs highlighted the beauty and workmanship of the map. Sea monster and nautical designs are also featured throughout the map. This type of cartographic elements dates back to circa 1550s - 1750s during the height of exploring the mysteries of the ocean seas.

The red border that surrounds the map is a special cartographic design that was also inspired by cartographic artistry. The jeweled-red border was intricately hand-drawn and was inspired by the art of cartography of the 1550s - 1700s.

Frequently Asked Questions

Canvas & Satin Paper Comparison

Satin Paper characteristics:

  • Modern Museum display, that features an ultra-smooth display surface with our professional mounting.
  • Beautiful fine-art, giclee, satin finish that is designed for rich color depth.
  • Perfect for the comprehensive, fine details, like those in the ocean bathymetry.

When compared to the canvas, the satin paper has a very smooth surface. Colors and details are rich and vivid on the satin finish.

Canvas characteristics:

  • The texture and feel of the canvas are attractive and offer a more historical or artistic appearance.
  • Features a fine-art, giclee, satin finish, which resists fingerprints and smudges.
  • Perfect for those with children or those who want a more tactile experience.

The canvas texture can compete with the labels in some of the complex areas of smaller maps. All of the labels are legible, and increasing the size of the map will help with this.

Will there be a hole in my map if I remove a pin?

One of the most frequently asked questions we get at GeoJango is about the holes left by moving a push pin after it has been placed on one of the push pin world maps. Specifically, we get asked, “Will there be a visible hole left in the push-pin map?” The simple answer is yes. However, we want everyone to consider that the holes are so small that they would be extremely difficult to see from more than a couple of feet away, even if you knew exactly where to look. So, even though there is a hole left from the puncture mark, it is small and barely noticeable, especially from a normal viewing distance beyond a couple of feet. Further, the integrity of the maps, thanks in part to the materials that are used, are held intact. High-quality materials combined with the small hole size help a lot, so you don’t have to worry about warping or tearing by normal pushing or pulling of the pins from the maps. This is true of all of our pin map options, including framed satin paper, framed canvas, and canvas wrap. Everyone can rest assured and take comfort that these made-in-America push pin maps are made with the highest quality materiels and will last for years to come.
