Physical maps show the surface of the earth or a specific area.
For this purpose Klett-Perthes wall maps employ the traditional color scheme which runs from green (lowlands) via yellow and light brown to dark brown (high-mountain areas). Differences in altitude are shown through shading. A wonderful 4 to 13 color layered imaging allows the cartography to show these physical maps on a flat surface to look as they are a raised relief map. Klett-Perthes is the only map company that can perform this kind of imaging.
Political maps show the outline of the world or a specific area by speical colors.
For this purpose Klett-Perthes wall maps employ the traditional color scheme which shows each country by a special pastel color. The most striking feature of the Klett-Perthes maps is the way the colors are represented. A diagonal view is used rather than the usual horizontal projection method.
For over 200 years, the German-based KLETT PERTHES map company has been producing superior quality maps.
