A Map Wall Mural is a decorative coup. Educational and artistic, historical and estimable, a map wall mural is a perfect piece of decoration to hang in your classroom, office, or study. Here at World Maps Online, we have a wide selection of world maps to choose from that will transform any wall. Our murals are printed using high-resolution digital files and feature delightful, detailed cartography. Once applied, our maps provide a dramatic accent for any space.
Our political maps are very popular. These maps depict major cities, national capitals, rivers, lakes, glaciers, mountain peaks, and latitude/longitude lines. Each country is given its own color blocks, as well as each US state and Canadian province. Each version of a political map comes with its own extra features. One displays ocean bathymetry; another combines antique ocean colors, and rich earth tones to lend the map an antique appearance; another depicts major seas, bays, straits, and major and minor islands; another brings shaded relief to the world’s terrain.
For the classroom, we have contemporary political wall maps complete with flags of all the world’s nations shown at the bottom. These maps are among the most detailed single sheet wall maps available today. They include thousands of place-name labels, including labels for national and state capitals, international and state boundaries, bodies of water, mountain ranges, and much more. Countries are delineated with solid blocks of color, and boundaries are defined in red outline.
One of our favorite map murals is the Executive World Map from National Geographic. This stunning political map features National Geographic’s signature cartographic style—a staple of their print publication for over seventy-five years. Richly detailed, with thousands of labels that have been meticulously placed to both enhance legibility and maximize the map’s level of fidelity, the Executive World Map is one of the most accurate world maps around. The map’s gorgeous antique-style cartography (utilizing rich earth tones) is enhanced by detailed relief shading that creates the effect of three-dimensional terrain as well as depth in ocean floor bathymetry. International boundaries, major cities, national capitals, rivers, lakes, deserts, mountain ranges, and many, many other features are shown on the map in bold, easy-to-read National Geographic fonts.
Another of our favorite maps is our NASA “Night Lights” Satellite Image mural. This stunning view of the night-time world depicts the extent and patterns of human settlements across the planet. Satellite image data derived from NASA is the source for this clear view of how we light up the night. City lights are presented in glowing detail, allowing you to easily identify urban centers across the globe. This unique satellite image map is an excellent conversation piece that will look great on any wall. It is a spectacular visualization of our human footprint.
