Editorial Reviews

From the Manufacturer

An ideal reference piece for home, classroom, or office, the Rand McNally Full Color Laminated World Wall Map uses Gall stereographic projections to show countries and continents truer to their relative size. Map features include durable lamination that allows for endless opportunities for lessons and game playing, and bold colors and detailed cartography. This map also features color-matching relief on mountain ranges and other elevation changes, and latitude and longitude marks. This map measures 32 x 50 inches.

Customer Reviews

This map is very bright and easy to read.
Luna
The map does have a bit of a glossy finish, so it's not paper thin, but it's far from what I would consider a lamination.
jenne
Map came in solid cardboard tube with no bend or creases.

We purchased both the world and USA maps to hang in the kids' playroom and they were a really great purchase; quite large, very strong and laminated so we can draw out our trips in dry erase markers which the kids just love to do. It was very important to me to find laminated for this purpose and most were VERY expensive - these were dirt cheap by comparison and we are quite impressed with the quality so far. We wanted something to help teach our kids geography both world & USA (as well as help us remember what we have forgotten from school)and so far these maps have been educational & fun. The kids cannot wait until the next season of The Amazing Race begins (which is what prompted me to purchase these maps in the first place), so we can map out the teams' route and visually "see" where they are traveling. The only problem we have had is that the USA map arrived quite mangled and could not be hung flat on a wall. Amazon customer service couldn't have been nicer. They sent us an immediate replacement and paid for us to return the damaged one.

The map itself is decent. Nice colors, good labeling. However, I did not expect plastic brackets on the top and bottom (to help with hanging and laying flat).

What really frustrated me was the shipping. It was shipped in two plastic bags, that's it. No tube or anything. I took it out of the plastic and it was very creased. Two large creases that will not smooth out running vertically and about twenty wrinkles which may or may not come out running horizontally. The sides that were on the end of the roll were also dinged up.

I will be returning this map to amazon.

Great Product, updated to reflect recent geopolitical changes. However, the box that AMZN shipped the rolled up map in broke in half while in UPS's possession, crumpling up the rolled up map completely. In true form to AMZN's great service, a replacement was sent along as a return postage for the damaged map. Unfortunately, the replacement was sent in the same exact type of packaging and broke in UPS's possession again! The second time, the damage was not nearly as bad, leaving only one small crease in the map, so I decided to just keep it. AMZN should probably change it's practice of using standard shipping tubes instead of long triangular boxes that can break fairly easily in shipper's hands.

The map looks just fine, but Amazon shipped it in a plastic bag. With no protection, it arrived badly crushed and bent, completely unusable. Amazon did replace it promptly, but this time used a flimsy cardboard box that still didn't protect it from damage. On a third attempt, also very prompt, they didn't even use the plastic bag, and it was badly damaged again. I appreciate the quick turnaround on the original order and the replacements, but it is absolutely ridiculous that a rolled-up laminated map would be packed for shipping without a protective tube (or without even a box, in two cases). I gave up on Amazon and will purchase it somewhere else. It looks like a nice map.

The first time this map was delivered, it was crushed and flattened as it was NOT shipped in a mailing tube...just a plastic wrapper. Amazon customer service was very responsive and sent out a second map...that also came without a mailing tube despite my asking that it be shipped in one. Alas, I had to return the second one as well. Looks like a nice map but I will have to find it locally. I cannot understand why Amazon cannot ship this product properly.

My main complaint is that the lamination is very thin! When secured to the wall with push-pins, it tears-off very quickly! Just thought that people who're interested in this should know about it!

My only problem with this item was the delivery method-super saver shipping with the USPS. It arrived in a long tube that had obviously been bent in half. The map itself was dented but not ripped. I chose not to get involved with the headache of dealing with USPS & Amazon to return the map. I can live with it. However, I would caution others to not think economics with this item. The other options may be more advantageous. And, if you have a mall nearby, take a drive and get it yourself.

This is a pretty nice map for the price. It's thinner than I expected and it has plastic strips across the top and bottom to give it some rigidity. The "lamination" is more like a plastic coating than what I would expect after reading "laminated map." Overall, I think its great for less than $12 shipped. Delivery was very fast and it came in a triangular shipping tube. The map itself was only protected inside this tube by plastic wrap...so it bounced around during shipping causing some slight crinkles at the edges, but the map arrived in reasonably good shape. If the map were enclosed in a tighter fitting plastic tube, which was then put in the shipping container, there would be zero damage during shipment. Oh well. Its still worth the price.
