A World Map is a pictorial representation or drawing of the entire world geography with features such as rivers, cities, countries, gulfs, mountains, oceans, etc. marked on a flat surface such as paper. The entire globe is visualized and brought to life on such a drawing through major markings. Cartographers study and analyze and then correlate measurements proportionate to the Map or paper requirements. Nowadays, World Maps derived by using GIS software are available online in various formats. We, at Mapsofworld.com, use the Mercator projection for maps shown on our site.
