Folded version of a political map of the world at 1:30,000,000 from Marco Polo Travel Publishing with countries presented in pleasant pastel colours against light blue seas. Accompanying booklet or the map cover provide an index, time zone map and language groups maps, facts and figures for all the countries, etc.
Country names are given as used in the country itself (Al-Maghrib, Türkiye, etc.) but with less familiar names accompanied by their English equivalents. City names are also in the local language (Athína, Dimasq, Al-Qahira), again where necessary with their English equivalents. Names of geographical features on land are in the local languages and/or English; oceans and seas are in English.
On land relief shading indicates mountain ranges with main peaks. The map also shows principal road and rail connections, and in selected larger countries (e.g. USA, Canada, Brazil or Australia) internal administrative boundaries are shown with names of states/provinces. On oceans and seas colouring shows the depth and the map shows main shipping routes. Polar Regions are not included beyond coverage of part of the coastline of Antarctica. New Zealand and the central part of the Pacific are shown on both sides of the map for clearer presentation of that region. Latitude and longitude lines are drawn at 10° intervals. The index, in a separate booklet attached to the map cover, includes geographical features such as mountains, rivers, etc. Map projection is Van der Grinten. Cartography is from the renowned German publishers MairDumont. Map legend includes English.
The booklet also includes a list of all the countries with their flag, area, population, etc, and the map cover provides maps with time zones and language groups, plus a table showing distances and flying times between selected main cities.
