This is our Map of the World with original scripts (original size 70 x 100 cm), from which the detailed map shown above has been cut out. The numbers of city inhabitants and vegetational zones were researched by hand for every country, by using the sources listed below. This procedure prevented the map from containing traditional errors provoked by simply copying such information from previous maps.
The map can be ordered for 11.50 Euros (+ postage and packing) at www.wissenladen.de.
Sources on which the information contained in this map is based:
The vegetational base map was aligned with satellite pictures from Google Earth.
The official names of the countries are quite well researched at www.geonames.de.
Also here you can find information on the geography of many countries: www.geographixx.de.
The numbers of inhabitants of the cities were taken from www.citypopulation.de.
And the mountain peak altitudes were largely derived form www.peakbagger.com.
