About the Map:
The Magellan Vintage World Map features special ocean terrain modeling and is named after the famous explorer Ferdinand Magellan, who pioneered the first ship that circumnavigated the world in the 16th century. The map includes historical details about Magellan's famous voyage.
Within this topographical map you'll find Wonders of the World, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the tallest peaks on every continent, the flows of ocean currents, and historical commentary. The amount of detail in our maps is truly impressive!

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 the largest mountain regions around the world.

Wall Decal: This is a high end fabric material that is suited for covering large wall spaces. We use special latex inks to provide rich color depth. Instructions are included.
Wall Decal as a Pin Map: Apply the map to a large sheet of Gatorboard or Foam Core that is 1/2" of depth before attaching it to your wall. Gatorboard or Foam Core can be purchased from local 'Professional Printer' shops.
You can use the map as a pin map - if your wall accepts map pins. The material will apply over the wall and apply the map pins into the wall - which will leave tiny holes in the wall.
