My wife gave this to me for Christmas, though we had both wanted it for more than a year. We love it, and get great compliments from it. My impressions:

Pros (5 stars):
- Beautiful. The day we had it installed we literally spent an hour that night admiring it and looking up different locations. My kids (4 and 2) love it as well. A previous reviewer said that it was too pink. Ours is a rich earth tone.
- Educational. In an era where apparently a large percentage of high-school seniors can't locate the United States on a map (let alone any other countries), I look forward to using the map to help ensure my kids don't follow the same race to the bottom.
- Practical and useful. Now that I have a large mural on which to plot and visualize (finished dimensions with a frame nearly 7ft x 10.5ft), my master plan for World Domination is now one step nearer to completion. Mwa ha ha ha!

Cons (collectively deduct one star):
- Buying it is the easiest (and least expensive) part. Unless you are very experienced in hanging wall paper, I wouldn't try to install this yourself. Not only do you have to trim vertical white borders in order for the three panels to match up to each other, but the three panels were printed slightly askew relative to each other, meaning that you had to align them and trim them while hanging them. You also have to maneuver the panels on the wall to match up city names, borders, latitude and longitude lines, etc. We ended up finding a great installer who charged us $115, though most quotes we got were in the $250-300 range.

As some customers have already stated, the mural itself is very nice when you look at the quality.

My wife purchased this for a relative and when it arrived she set out to install with her sister, very craft oriented, and her mother. The instructions recommend professional installation. This is probably the way to go. Other wise in order to get a seamless mural you will be required to make a series of cuts from top to bottom in excess of the height of the mural, over 6 feet. There is a white border around all three panels, with the center panel requiring the removing of the white border. If you wanted a seamless fit, even more cuts would be necessary unless you don't mind overlapping panels, still requiring the two cuts. Difficult to do in the average home and get it right.

My wife requested a refund from the seller Swift Maps and got what I would consider a rude and condescending e-mail in return. Both my wife and I have both been in retail for a long time and the response was the type that a normal place of business would issue corrective action or termination for that kind of interaction with customers. The seller will only take the product back if it is "new resell-able condition", again hard to do once you have taken it out unrolled it and discovered the challenges that lie ahead.
My suggestion is buy it if you are having it installed professionally, or make sure you have the skills and tools necessary for a time consuming installation before ordering. My suggestion overall, skip this product, and certainly this seller. Horrible customer service.

If you are looking for a large sophisticated world map, look no further. I used to have the massive DOD 13 foot wide one in my old residence but chose this one for its nicer colors and more workable size. The 8 panel DOD map's detail is great but polar distortions are extreme and colors are too clinical if not grade-schoolish. Its also a little bit too huge for most rooms. The Nat Geo has superbly rich colors and is also highly detailed. Minus the shipping routs, I would say its as detailed as the DOD map. Includes such features as time zones, land/mountain elevations and sea floor/trench deapths and many more, such as airport marker locations. The top corners present the poles in magnificent detail, including which countries claim which areas. The bottom left and right maps show land use patterns and population density of the world. It even has small paragraphs in certain hot spots breaking down the current political situation as far as geography is concerned, as in the case of Taiwan. Everyone who has seen the map says it looks like a piece of art. Because so, I've even decided not to put pins in it. I trimmed the white boarders off which framed it beautifully. Hanging it was what you'd expect from a large 3-panel piece of wall paper. Not easy, but not terrible either. One person could do it if need be. I hung the 8 panel 8 by 13 ft DOD map myself with precise results). Using regular wall paper paste, it took my brother and I about three hours from trimming the boarders to the end. The hardest part was positioning it correctly on the wall which took a number of precise measurements, markers and observations. No rocket science. The top of paper itself was very durable and resistant to wetness so no problem or damage there.Read more ›
