Which is bigger, Greenland or China? With the traditional Mercator map Greenland and China look to be the same size but in reality China is almost 4 times larger! In response to such discrepancies, Dr. Arno Peters created an equal area map, a new world map that dramatically improves the accuracy of how we see the Earth. The latest maps comes in a variety of formats: laminated; paper folded; spring roller mounted, oversize laminated, and synthetic paper oversize.
For the previous 2007 edition - Size was 35'' x 50''  -- There is no more stock of these.

There are now several options for an updated Peters Map -
The newest large size Peters Map with South Sudan is available
HERE and is 39x50".
The 2014 updated large version does NOT include the side text panel on the right of the map.
We now are have a 2015 mid-size version which is available in the following two formats:
24"x36" with the map only
24"x36" with the side explanation panel and bottom comparison panels
and we also have an 11"x17" Desktop Peters Map HERE
