Graduation season takes millions of students from
familiar surroundings and turns their worlds upside down.
But really, a world with Terra del Fuego, Capetown, and
Melbourne at the top? Precisely! Now you can give your
graduate a new map of the world with this provocative,
"south on the top", perspective (see the map at
The "What's Up? South!" world map is a mind-stretching,
world-broadening tool that flies in the face of convention.
What better way to remind us of the limits imposed by
conventional thinking than a map of the world with north at
the bottom? What better way to encourage your graduate's
ability to think "outside-the-box!"
The message of the "What's Up? South!" map is simple --
"It takes many points of view to see the truth." Map
publisher Bob Abramms, of ODT, Inc., says "Our Peters
Projection Map was turned upside/down last year by the NBC
television show WEST WING and opened a lot of eyes." The
"What's Up? South!" map teaches people to question
assumptions…about maps, directions, and viewpoints.
ODT's Self-Esteem Passport (also seen at
is a perfect companion gift for this new world view. It can
help your new graduate negotiate this often upside-down
world. The Self-Esteem Passport will bolster new graduates'
confidence and increase their awareness of their strengths.
Packed with surveys, questionnaires and resources, this
valuable tool is designed to help people discover their own
viewpoints and directions.
The "What's Up? South!" full-color world map is 36" x 56"
and available in a folded paper version for $20.00, or
laminated and rolled for $29.95. The Self-Esteem Passport is
$6.95. Both can be purchased through ODT by visiting our
