National Geographic's political map of Russia and the independent states of the former Soviet Union is one of the most authoritative maps of region. This Classic style wall map features a bright color palette with blue oceans and the country's terrain detailed in stunning shaded relief that has been a hallmark of National Geographic maps for over 75 years. Thousands of place names, accurate political boundaries, bodies of water, and major infrastructure networks such as roadways, airports, canals, oil pipelines, and railroads are detailed. Coastal bathymetry is shown with depth curves and soundings, and the boundaries of Northern Sea shipping routes are marked as well. Coverage also includes Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Ukraine, Belarus, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan, Mongolia, North Korea, South Korea, and Japan, as well as portions of Germany, Poland, Iran, Pakistan, and China.
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.
