National Geographic Maps.

As recently as the mid 1990's if you wanted maps produced by the National Geographic Society, you had to join the Society and subscribe to the Magazine. This was not always practical for many people because of location, expense, etc. So National Geographic Maps became a distributor for the National Geographic Society. The Society has been producing some of the Highest Quality Maps for over 100 years. Their Catalog is tremendous and extensive.

National Geographic now publishes detailed Software for Topographic Maps for each of the 50 United States as well as a Digital 3-D "Globe" and software with ALL the maps they have ever published.

ODT, Inc./Friendship Press

The Friendship Press produces one of the most Unique Maps around. The Peters Projection World Map is in a Class By Itself. Originally produced in the 1920's, the Peters Projection is possibly the most accurate maps showing land area for our planet. An 'Equal Area' Map, the Peters Projection shows all of the land on the planet in actual relation to its size. This does make for some interesting shapes as the map is more concerned with the land area than maintaining "accepted" shapes of the land. That is, the Peters Projection Map will show that Greenland is actually similar in size to Mexico rather than South America as many maps portray Greenland.

The Peters Projection Map is a must for any Cultural Diversity Classroom. The map measures 35 inches by 45 inches with a price of $34.95 for a Laminated Version.
