The equal area Peters Map has attracted more press coverage, both praise and criticism, than any other map in history. It was featured in the hit TV show,The West Wing. Now, for the first time in North America, the Peters Map is available with one more novel, thought-provoking twist...the Pacific Ocean is in the middle. Prices range from $9.95 for folded paper (20.5'' x 32'') to $550 for a 64'' wide custom map.
Price:  $9.95

Pacific-centered Peters Equal Area Map  

This new 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.

The new low price of $9.95 for the paper/folded version makes this Peters wall map very affordable, and the mid-size fills a particular need of people who don't a have a full wall to devote to the larger 3' x 4' map. Folded, the map is only 4" x 9.5" making it handy to file and store.

The paper/folded version and the laminated/tubed version include a panel loaded with valuable web references- websites to get more information and free classroom resources. These two formats have a new explanation (printed at the bottom of the map on the folded version, detached on the laminated version). This explanation provides a balanced interpretation of the map, particularly useful for teachers and home-schoolers. NOTE: The laminated version without tube ($19.95) does not include the explanatory panel and resource panel.
