This new map brings your visual focus onto the oceans instead of the land and "feels" quite different from the Africa-centered Peters Map. This map will challenge students to think about the world, and USA-centrism, in a whole new way, providing an entree into many topics of discussion. This Pacific-centered version is color-coded as a "physical relief" map showing mountain ranges, different types of terrain, etc.

20.5'' x 32''
