National Geographic's Classic style map of China is one of the most authoritative maps of the country. Coverage also includes bordering areas of neighboring countries, the entire Korean Peninsula, Taiwan and some Japanese Islands along with the East and South China Seas. This map features thousands of place names, including primary and secondary towns, accurate boundaries and clearly defined international borders, transportation infrastructure such as airports, highways and railroads and the Great Wall. Physical geography details include shaded relief and cartographic patterns are used to depict glaciers, sand and swamps.
The map is encapsulated in heavy-duty 1.6 mil laminate which makes the paper much more durable and resistant to the swelling and shrinking caused by changes in humidity. Laminated maps can be framed without the need for glass, so the fames can be much lighter and less expensive.
