Recommended Wall and Desk Maps of East Asia

TABLE OF CONTENTS
INTRODUCTORY NOTE

Many map companies label their maps as maps of "Asia," even when the maps actually include all of Eurasia with political and physical indications. Maps produced with this inclusive approach of showing all of Eurasia may be more helpful to students than maps that take the approach of cropping out the "European" countries from a map of Eurasia and labeling what remains as "Asia," which is to a large degree an arbitrary designation. (See the article What Is "Asia"? for more about this question of what constitutes "Asia.")

All of the recommended maps on this list, with the exception of the Peters Projection wall map, denote physical features. This is essential for student understanding of the impact of geography.
