October 6, 2009   ·     ·   Jump to comments

Map-making or Cartography, is the study, and often practices of creating a graphic representation or scale model of the Earth upon a flat surface. By tradition, the history of cartography had been dominated by geographers. This combined expertise produce almost accurately measured maps of the present and lead in the use of precise tools like aerial surveillance, satellite mapping, and geographic information systems. Maps of the world are often either ˜political or physical. The most significant purpose of the political map is to show territorial borders; the purpose of the physical map is to show features of geography such as mountains, soil type or land use. Geological maps illustrate not only the physical surface, but characteristics of the underlying rock, fault lines, and subsurface structures. This compilation shows the best-looking world map wallpaper we can find online.

    Canvas Prints on your home walls is a beautiful thing, especially if it’s you own canvas artwork or even if it is you own photo on canvas it still gives of a really different arty effect.
    Its really is amazing what can be achieved these days with technology and the feel a canvas photo can actually give of. Very nice stuff.

    can i use it for publication?

  26. Mur on April 17th, 2011 2:04 am

    These are really, really wicked! I especially like Shake the System World, and I don't really see how it is biased- all those things are problems we face in the world today. Art is about free expression; about making statements when words or people cannot; about expressing fears and beliefs and hopes. Art is really a personal thing, and it's all about the way you look at it. Will you choose to see the world with open eyes, and an open mind?

  27. Ionic Breeze on April 27th, 2011 4:58 pm

    Very creative. It is a wonderful collection of wall papers.

  28. Tour Pack on April 27th, 2011 5:02 pm
