The Wide Ranging World Map is the only wall map that corresponds to the multicultural and environmental awareness of today. In addition to conventional features-every country and key city-this map features prominent indigenous nations (Inuit, Palestinian); cultural regions (Wales, Transylvania); highly populated regions; and active border disputes. This map replaces mere elevation with a blazing rendition of ecosystems and vegetation (forests, deserts, tundra), and it features ecological degradation (rainforest destruction, marine pollution, radioactive contamination) A map to learn from!

In addition to conventional features of an advanced physical and political map, this wall map indicates terrain-e.g. savanna, tundra, forest-instead of elevation. It displays vastly populated regions. It notes prominent indigenous nations-e.g. Kurds, Palestinians, Inuit-shedding light on many of the Fourth World conflicts.
It includes environmental information: indicating severe marine pollution and destroyed rain forests as well as regions where Fourth World nations remain the main users of the environment. Other unique features include territorial capitals, the Antarctic desert, volcanoes, continents naming, rose compass, cropland, and cultural regions-e.g. Kashmir, Transylvania, Scotland.
Regions of the ocean are clearly depicted and details if islands like mountain ranges, and Fourth World nations in the news like the Ache in northern Sumatra.
The Wide-Ranging World Map is a Magnetic teaching tool!
Chris Durbin, the Formal Geography Advisor for BBC Education, stated that the map is
One of the best I have seen. I would without hesitation recommend it. Pupils were drawn to it like a magnet.
