This map is uses attractive colors and style to show the natural beauty of the world.
A beautiful depiction of the natural beauty of the world, this natural physical map uses colors to indicate the type of environment in different regions of the planet.
Deep greens represent forests (both tropical rainforests and coniferous forests in the north). Yellows indicate grasslands and plains. Browns and reds indicate deserts. Whites and grays represent mountains and tundra.
The map also includes vivid three dimensional shading of terrain. This really helps to add depth to the landscape and to visualize elevation changes. Mountains, in particular, seem to jump right off the page in this physical map poster.
This physical map is intentionally void of any text labels, in order to maintain the clean and uncluttered appearance of the natural world. International boundaries are provided, but other labels are left off. For this reason, this physical map is primarily a visual poster, not suitable for a reference map.
For a labeled physical map with lots of names of places, countries, and natural features with the same general physical background, check out this physical map with labels.
