Giant World Map
This extra-large map of the world is based on the Mercator Projection and is ideal for both business and educational purposes, or even simply as a stunning wall display. The exceptionally clear format shows political boundaries with each country depicted in a different vibrant colour to its immediate neighbours. The world map is further enhanced by coloured relief and ocean depth depictions, thus adding a striking textured effect and providing an element of physical representation to this political map. International time zones are depicted along the bottom of the map. Cities are depicted in five population bands, and the map also shows principal roads and railways, international boundaries (indicating those which are disputed) as well as state boundaries within countries. Capital cities of both countries and states are displayed, and international airports and seaports are shown.

South rose window of Notre Dame cathedral depicting Jesus disciples, Paris, France
Notre-Dame de Paris is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Ile de la Cite in Paris, France. The cathedral is widely considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture, and is among the largest and most well-known church buildings in the world. The naturalism of its sculptures and stained glass are in contrast with earlier Romanesque architecture.
