From the far northern reaches of the Arctic Sea to the Isthmus of Panama, this Classic style political map of North America features trademark National Geographic detail and accuracy. The bright color palette features blue oceans and stunning shaded relief that has been a signature of National Geographic wall maps for over 75 years. Political boundaries are clearly defined, and place names, airports, major roadways, and other geographical features are easy to read. In addition to Canada, the United States, Mexico, and Central America, coverage includes Iceland, Greenland, the island nations of the Caribbean, Venezuela, and most of Colombia. An inset map shows the Aleutian Islands off the coast of Alaska.
The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the fames can be much lighter and less expensive.
