Attractive wall map of Africa from California Geological Survey

The crew at the California Geological Survey has announced the preliminary release of its fifth wall map - a very attractive map of Africa. The map is approximately 42" x 47" in size and is based upon a Universal Transverse Mercator projection. The shaded relief terrain is based upon SRTM dems and the surface details come from MODIS satellite imagery. A. sample map in jpg format has been included for general scrutiny and can be seen at - nice work!
