WORLD RECORD-BREAKER AT INTERGEO 2009: Largest children's map of the world to be unveiled in Karlsruhe / Exhibition of world maps featuring numerous world firsts

Karlsruhe, —September 15, 2009 — The map of the world on display at INTERGEO in Karlsruhe from 22 to 24 September is a favourite addition to children's bedrooms, due to its lovingly crafted, finely detailed images. However, it is its sheer size that makes this map truly unique. Measuring 4.35 by 3.09 metres, it is the largest map of its kind printed as a single piece. Stiefel Eurocart from Lenting, Bavaria, is now bringing its record-breaking children's map to the world's largest congress trade fair for geodesy, geoinformation and land management. This is the first time that the map will be on display to a wider audience.

INTERGEO will also celebrate the premiere of an impressive selection of contemporary, decorative world maps. The approximately 35 exhibits in the display of world maps at Stand 4.641 in the dm-arena (Hall 4) include a number of world firsts that are not yet available to purchase on the market. Made of paper, fabric and film, the maps enable people to trace their own personal trip across the globe. Ranging in scale from 1:20 million to 1:40 million, the maps display not only physical features, but also details of politics, transport, tourism, time zones, the hydrosphere, geology, earthquakes and tsunamis. The ocean floor and groundwater resources also feature. A night image of the Earth and various satellite maps open up entirely new perspectives. The maps, in a number of different languages, have various centre points and some have switched the conventional positions of North and South.

INTERGEO 2009 is taking place in Karlsruhe from 22 to 24 September 2009.
