National Geographic’s Classic map of the world in French provides a detailed geographic view of national and regional boundaries, depicting current political realities across all continents. Perfect as a personal reference map pinpointing your travels both past and future, this map can also be a tool for businesses to display global office, supplier, and distribution locations.
This signature Classic style map uses a bright, easy-to-read color palette featuring blue oceans and stunning shaded relief that has been featured on National Geographic wall maps for over 75 years. Drawn in the Winkel Tripel projection, distortions of land masses around the poles are minimized: unlike many other World maps, Greenland is accurately shown as the same size as Argentina and not the size of all of South America. Thousands of place names are carefully placed on the map to maintain legibility even in the heavily populated areas of Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Details include clearly defined international boundaries, cities, physical features, rivers, and ocean floor features. Corner inset maps feature vegetation and land use, population density, and the north and south polar regions.
National Geographic’s maps are the standard by which all other reference maps are measured. They are meticulously researched and adhere to National Geographic’s convention of making independent, apolitical decisions based on extensive research using multiple authoritative sources.
Map Size: 43.75″ x 30.5″

Most wall maps are offered in a variety of finishing options. If you need a map that’s ready to hang on the wall, we can frame or martin mount your map to save you time and money. Here are the details, contact us with questions.
Paper Paper finishing is the most economical option. Most maps are printed on premium 36lb paper. Waterproof paper is also available for functional maps that may be used outdoors.
laminated Paper maps are printed then run through our laminator that secures 1.7mil-thick satin-gloss-finished lamination on the front and back. Use map stickers and wet-erase markers on your map.
mounted 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.
Rails First, we laminate the map 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, so it’s ready to hang. Use stickers or wet-erase markers on your map.
Martin Mount 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.
Framed 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.
