World Map in High-definition
The political map of the world centered on Europe and Africa. This map shows the location of most of the world’s countries and includes the name. It is difficult to represent the round shape of the earth using a flat map. This is because you will always lose some information, even if you want to represent it as realistically as possible.

The map also shows the meridians and parallels which are lines that represent coordinates on a geographical coordinate system.
