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

We've had many requests for the 11" x 17" placemat size Peters map with up-to-date boundaries (and the country names left off). NOW... For the first time, ODT is offering our clients, customers, and the general public a copyright-free version of the Peters Projection world map.

Download any of the Black & White versions offered here at whatever resolution is most appropriate for your use. Each version includes major rivers and contains hill-shading relief suggesting land elevations.

Reproduction of these Black and White Peters Maps requires the following conditions be met: (1) maps may not be altered in proportions, (2) maps for distribution may not be "colorized" (free reproduction is permitted only for the B&W format), and (3) you must keep the web sites as they are listed on the map. Map images can be copied freely for any non-profit educational use. To reprint these maps in any commercial context contact ODT at 1-800-736-1293 or .

The map on the lower left is appropriate to a small 640/480 screen. The middle image is appropriate to a large 1280/1024 screen (middle), and an 11" x 17" printable size (to the right) is probably too large for any screen, and may take some time to download due to its size!
