Gall Orthographic World Map
What is a Gall Orthographic Map?
The Scottish cartographer James Gall published a scientific paper that included an image of his Gall Orthographic Projection in 1885. This idea was revolutionary at the time because it’s an equal area projection that shows countries in the proper size and proportion to each other.
Many popular modern maps continue to show large distortions in country size. For example, Greenland and Africa appear to be the same size on the Mercator projection, when in fast Africa is 14x larger than Greenland.
Our map was plotted using Gall’s math then expertly designed to create the most legible version of this projection available. The map includes a relief layer that displays changes in topography and even ocean floor depths.

Finishing Options for Push-Pin Maps
Paper maps are printed then laminated with 1.7mil-thick satin lamination onto 1/4″-thick foamcore. You can use map pins, stickers, or wet-erase markers with our mounted maps.
First, we laminate the map onto foamcore then we mount wood rails at the top and bottom of the map. The front side of each rail is finished with a black or walnut finish. The sides and back are unfinished. Sawtooth hardware is fixed to the back of the top rail. Use map pins, stickers, or wet-erase markers on your maps.
Maps are laminated onto foam core then secured into the frame. The engineered molding is made from recycled wood in either a black or walnut-finish. Most map moldings are 2″ x 3/4″ but maps 24″ x 36″ and under use a 1.25″ wide molding. You can use map pins, stickers, or wet-erase markers on all our framed maps.
The map, frame, and shipping was less than an unframed map in any of the stores. It arrived beautifully framed with picture wire, ready to hang. This is a fantastic family run business in Charlotte, NC that is professional in every way.
Hard to find stores like this anymore. They have tons of inventory on-site, but can also print and special order other options. Glad I found this place.
