The Future Mapping Company

The Future Mapping Company complements up-to-date map data with a strong focus on design, creating cartography for the twenty-first century. These maps utilise a cylindrical equal area projection (Don't switch off!). This represents countries in their correct proportional size, something that a lot of maps do not do. It achieves this by sacrificing shape, particularly in the areas closest to the poles. The result is an alternative and thought-provoking vision of our planet.We have the "pine-coral-gold" limited addition version available in our stores.

  1. Hey,

    Doing some press for Future Mapping Company and just wanted to say thanks for writing and sharing this post about our maps! We've since created a map of NYC (http://www.futuremaps.co.uk/new-york-city-wall-map) which might be of interest to your readers!
