What´s Up South World Map

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.

Chicago-centered World Map 8.5 x 11 in.
This Chicago, IL- centered map is an example of a city-centered azimuthal equidistant map. It provides information about distance from Chicago to every other location in the world. It is a great map for residents of Chicago, but not much help if you don’t live there. And because any map has to distort SOME aspect of the truth, the further you get from Chicago, the worse the distortion of shapes. We have a Toronto-centered azimuthal equidistant map explained in detail in our book SEEING THOUGH MAPS (see page 28) if you’d like more information on how and why these city-centered maps are created. Samples of the Chicago map are printed in color on the front, with an explanation of azimuthal equidistant maps on the reverse.  Sample maps are printed at 8.5” x 11” and are $7.50.

Toronto-centered world map poster

In order to achieve this benefit, you need to sacrifice some shapes and sizes.

World Map for People in the USA - 11 x17 in.

We can customize a map like this for any city in the world! (only $199)
The traditional world map is poorly suited to understanding global relationships in our present era in which these relationships have become increasingly important to all peoples on earth. Traditional and current world maps are mostly centered on the equator, and project the round world as a rectangle or ellipse. This means the world is broken up along the edges, usually in the middle of an ocean (east/west) or at the poles (north/south), providing the map user with an inadequate image of global relationships. The equator-centered world maps all distort distance relationships. This makes it look as though the shortest routes between places invariably follow lines of latitude. The map user has no idea that direct routes often go over or near the poles or across a divided ocean.

Africa´s World 11 x 17 in.
This Africa-centered global perspective on the planet is an azimuthal equal area map. The map is centered on the Equator and 15 degrees East as a convenient geographical center point of the continent. The world is shown as spreading outwards in all directions from that point. It provides information about distance from this central point in Africa to every other location in the world. It also shows all the countries at the same scale and in proportion. It is a great map for residents of Africa, but not much help if you don’t live there. And because any map has to distort SOME aspect of the truth, the further you get from Africa, the worse the distortion of shapes. Sample Africa map, 11”x 17” - $11.00 each.

U.S. as seen from Canada

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.

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.

Rethinking the Power of Maps - by Denis Wood
A contemporary follow-up to the groundbreaking Power of Maps, this book takes a fresh look at what maps do, whose interests they serve, and how they can be used in surprising, creative, and radical ways. Denis Wood describes how cartography facilitated the rise of the modern state and how maps continue to embody and project the interests of their creators. He demystifies the hidden assumptions of mapmaking and explores the promises and limitations of diverse counter-mapping practices today. Thought-provoking illustrations include U.S. Geological Survey maps; electoral and transportation maps; and numerous examples of critical cartography, participatory GIS, and map art. $30.00
