This south-at-the-top map is a great educational tool. It challenges basic notions of ''up'' and ''down.'' True ''up'' from our standpoint on the earth, is away from the center, and the earth in space has no inherent up or down. To emphasize this point, this map includes an inset, which shows global views from various angles. In addition, other inset maps show examples of a variety of projections with notes on their merits and limitations. Prices vary $16.95 - $550. Our best value are the paper folded maps. Also we may have damaged and oddball clearance maps for $8.50 or special volume pricing for schools and frame shops - to order these CALL US at 800-736-1293. The 2x3' size is perfect for stock 2x3' frames. PLEASE NOTE: Some formats and some sizes are cartographically updated to include South Sudan. The ones with South Sudan are generally more expensive.

We can customize a map like this for any city in the world! (only $199)The traditional world map is poorly suited to understanding global relationships in our present era in which these relationships have become increasingly important to all peoples on earth. Traditional and current world maps are mostly centered on the equator, and project the round world as a rectangle or ellipse. This means the world is broken up along the edges, usually in the middle of an ocean (east/west) or at the poles (north/south), providing the map user with an inadequate image of global relationships. The equator-centered world maps all distort distance relationships. This makes it look as though the shortest routes between places invariably follow lines of latitude. The map user has no idea that direct routes often go over or near the poles or across a divided ocean. A REVOLUTIONARY NEW MAP FOR PEOPLE IN THE USA
