Standard size is 39'' x 50'' .Mid size maps also available at 24x36" size (either with panels or without)See: http://odtmaps.com/detail.asp_Q_product_id_E_Pet-Wall-24x36mapONLYorhttp://odtmaps.com/detail.asp_Q_product_id_E_Pet-Wall-24x36includesPANELS

This Raleigh Dymaxion (TM) map is a desktop version at 1/4th of the size of the 22''x34'' full-size version we produced. It is perfect for a student desktop map, as it shows the sizes and shapes of the continents accurately. The paper format can be cut up and folded into the 20-sided polyhedron that Fuller started with. Or this size, when laminated, can make a snappy addition to your breakfast table as an exciting placemat. It's educational, as it has a lengthy explanation printed on the reverse side. The text on the map (being reduced in size) is hard to read, but the desktop version has the same vivid colors of the original.
