South Up Maps offer a unique and equally valid perspective.
A map that not only shows true size comparisons, but also turns the world upside down to challenge North-South perceptions. Based on the popularity of the Peters concept of equal area, we produced a similar map, the Hobo Dyer Projection, which offers less elongation than the Peters map but more compression at the poles. This is the map that President Jimmy Carter used to display his agency's efforts at his Nobel Peace Prize ceremony in December 2002. Prices range from $8.25 for 11''x17'' paper folded map to $424 for a 64'' wide custom map. For larger quantities, special pricing is available to schools and not-for-profit organizations.

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.
Printed on two sides - One with south on top (Australia-centered), the other with north on top (Africa-centered).

Unique downunder viewpoint with cheeky Aussie humor. Stuart McArthur drew his first South-up map when he was 12 years old. At age 15, after being tormented for coming from the ''bottom of the world,'' Stuart resolved to one day publish a map with Australia at the top. Six years later, while at Melbourne University, he produced the world's first ''modern'' south-up map and launched it on Australia day in 1979. It has sold over 350,000 copies to date. Prices from $20. Many formats on sale now!

One of the most unusual maps of the USA we've ever seen. A south-on-top map, it features meticulously hand-drawn rivers and mountain ranges. The divisions between states are represented by dotted lines, so one sees the physical relief features first and foremost. This is a view of North America as if one were seeing it from an orbiting space station somewhere over Canada. Approx. 2' x 3'. Free second map if you send us a JPG image of your colored-in version of the map.
You will be amazed at the elaborate detail of this map. A south-on-top map of Central and South America featuring meticulously hand-drawn rivers and mountain ranges. Approx. 2' x 3'.
