From the Isthmus of Panama to the southern reaches of Cape Horn, National Geographic's wall map of South America combines beauty with function. The antique-style Executive map uses a rich color palette and stunning shaded relief that fits with any decor. Political boundaries are clearly defined, and place names, airports, major roadways, and other geographical features are easy to read. Ocean features and currents, as well as depth curves and soundings add context to the continent's extensive coastline and the diverse human populations that inhabit those shores. Coverage includes the countries and major cities of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
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.
