"National Geographic's Giant Travelling Maps bring hands-and-feet-on geographic education to hundreds of thousands of students each year. National Geographic is thrilled to extend this program to state-based versions of the maps."

Travelling Map

"The State Giant Maps project is based on the success of National Geographic's Giant Travelling Maps program. As its 2017 National Initiative for Alliances, the National Geographic Society has provided all 50 states and the District of Colombia with a free (estimated 20'x16') map of their state using the expertise of National Geographic's Cartographic Division and research on elementary spatial thinking. This project is an expression of the commitment that the National Geographic Society has to educators who are teaching students about the world and empowering them to make a difference."
