World Peters Projection Map, Pacific-centered

World Peters Projection Map, Pacific-centered

Paper folded map. Laminated map available elsewhere. This map brings your visual focus onto the oceans instead of the land and feels quite different from the Africa-centered Peters Map. This map will challenge students to think about the world, and USA-centrism, in a whole new way, providing an entree into many topics of discussion. This Pacific-centered version is color-coded as a physical relief map showing mountain ranges, different types of terrain, etc. It uses a proprietary technique of Oxford Cartographers known as 3-D hill-shading. Important features of the Peters Map: The Peters Map is an equal area map; the map shows all areas - whether countries, continents or oceans - according to their actual size. Accurate comparisons become possible; on the Peters Map all North-South lines run vertical on this map. Thus, geographic points can be seen in their precise directional relationship. This is a paper folded map….and a durable laminated version is also available on AMAZON or in your local map store.

Peters Projection World Map - Laminated

Peters Projection World Map - Laminated

The Peters Projection World Map is an equal area projection. That means that one square inch anywhere on the map is an equal number of square miles. All the countries of the world are represented at true size and true proportion. This map is a 2007 edition and does not include updates like South Sudan. There is a newer 2014 edition wall map for sale on AMAZON which is larger -39.5”x50”, and omits the right side EXPLANATION panel. There is also a 2015 version which is smaller at 24"x36" and that map comes both with the panels (right and bottom - like this map sold here) and a 24"x36" map with JUST the map (i.e., No panels). This is one of the few commercially available maps that is fair to all peoples. Most maps drastically enlarge the size of the Northern hemisphere countries and diminish the size of the Southern hemisphere countries. This traditional bias leads most people to overestimate the importance of the developed nations based on their inflated appearance. The 1999 Peters map comes laminated (3 mil, edge seal) and rolled in a durable plastic tube. An explanation in enclosed with the map including comparisons to other common projections (Mercator, Van der Grinten, Robinson, Tripel-Winkel, etc.).
