This latest edition of the popular ITMB map of South Africa has had a complete cartographic face-lift. The hypsometry (contouring colouration) is much more sharply defined, the rivers more visible, and the roads defined more accurately by quality. The country's growing stretches of motorway have also been updated.

The map includes decent insets showing street plans of Pretoria, Johannesburg and Cape Town with some accommodation and various other points of interest marked.

Some roads in Lesotho, Swaziland, and surroundings of Maputo (Mozambique) and Gaborone (Botswana) are also included. A range of symbols and graphics indicatepoints of interest, churches, archaeological sites, beaches, diving, museums, forts, campsites, caves, accommodation, World Heritage sites, clinics, police stations, airports, lighthouses, springs, hot springs, border crossing points, etc.

Topography is shown using altitude shading with some spot heights. The map is double sided and printed on durable waterproof, tear resistant plastic paper.

Gloss Laminate

Gloss laminate makes colours look more vibrant and stand out more, but is quite shiny (reflective). If you’re planning on using a marker of any sort, this is a better choice because it’s easier to clean. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Matte Laminate

Matte laminate has a smooth, non-reflective, very classy looking surface. I wouldn’t say it dulls colours, but it doesn’t make them ‘pop’ (I hate that I just used that word) in the way that gloss does. Matte can be drawn on with pencil (and erased), but is harder to clean if you use markers. Your print will be fully encapsulated (so laminated on both sides) in durable 80 micron laminate and will last you a lot longer than plain paper.

Canvas

Everything looks better on canvas! Something about the texture really makes prints look wonderful. It is quite expensive though. We use a very high quality 340gsm artistic matte canvas. Your canvas print will come rolled with a roughly 50mm white border to allow you to have it stretched or mounted however you wish.
