I don't have easy access to a good map of the earth so to have this map on the wall is a great boon especially as I have a bit of a hobby mapping the real-world locations of all my chatmates and business contacts. My young daughter thinks it is wonderful. She sits in front of it every day planning her future travels and holiday destinations. She also looks up any countries she hears about on the news that she isnt already aware of so I cant fault its educational value. When it comes to geography she can put me to shame nowdays and that is after only 2 weeks of having this map! Though the national boundaries will change rapidly with all the wars we see in the Middle East the map will still remain 99% accurate for many years to come. And even if it need updating, at this price it would be affordable to buy one a year even. At $1.25 per month on average, one a year is a very affordable option. If not an updated version of the same one, then perhaps one of the many others available.
