World maps are available in many types and sizes. You can select different projections, map images, physical or political views, detailing, or color use. Below we'll give your more information about these different choices.
Projections world map
Viewing the outside of a round ball on a flat surface (on a map) is not possible without first adjusting the image of the bulb here and there. That is precisely what kartographers have tried over the centuries. There are hundreds of types of projections developed. The most used projections are the Mercator, Robinson and the WGS84 projection.
The most famous projection method is the Mercator projection; a world imagery that shows the countries around the eauator relatively smaller than the countries there further away from. This very old projection method is still widely used because the most influential countries / continents so far in our world are just not near the equator and therefore relatively larger. This world map projection has also been revived because Google uses this projection as a basis for all its maps. The Robinson projection and the WGS 84 projection are even more accurate, but the "major" continents like Europe, North America and Australia are smaller projected than displayed in the Mercator projection.
Europeans are familiar with Europe in the middle displayed, America left and Asia and Australia right. The Americans and the Chinese know a very different map image. These images depict America and / or China in the middle of the world map. In the World Maps section on our website you will find these map images.
PoliticalWorld Map or Physical World Map?
A political world map shows all states, including countries in a clear way. In addition, many other information is also shown and appointed; (main) cities, rivers, mountains, etc.
A physical map shows usually the height, but that does not always have to be the case. Land use, soil type, temperature or other "physical" information can also be displayed.
