A Quick Guide to World Maps and Scratch Maps™

There are a lot of interesting things to use a World Map for. Planning future trips, improving your geographical knowledge, learning where the highest mountain in the world is, the deepest point in the ocean, pronouncing all the countries in Africa, memorising the fifty states in America…But one of the most useful things you can use a world map for is keeping track of all the fantastic places in the world that you’ve visited.

That’s where our Scratch Map™ world map posters come in. Remove the foil from each country you’ve visited to reveal vibrant colours and interesting facts underneath.

Scratch Map collection

If you’re the type of traveller who enjoys taking in the sights, soaking up the culture and learning the local language, we’d recommend one of our informative Scratch Map™ world map posters such as the Scratch Map™ Hello poster or Scratch Map™ Oceans poster. Learn how to say hello in over 190 countries or learn key ocean facts and nautical flags to represent the alphabet.

Scratch Map Chalk and Travel world maps

Everyone knows an ‘itinerary is everything’ traveller. For these organised folk, try our Scratch Map™ Chalk world map poster. Write travel plans (or lover’s names) on the Scratch Map™ Chalk poster whilst keeping track of the places visited by removing the foil. With a wipe away chalk pen, it allows for a little spontaneity/change of plan (not that that’s a regular occurrence for these itinerary fiends). Or if they want to keep organised on the go, try one of our travel sized Scratch Map™ maps. Small enough to throw in their rucksack or suitcase, they can keep track of all their adventures in real time.

Adventure World Map

For the adrenalin junkies, there’s only one solution. Our Adventure Map™ poster. A Scratch Map™ map featuring over 280 ‘must do’ bucket list experiences. Imagine cage diving with crocodiles. You can get up close and personal with these huge salt-water beasts in Crocosaurus Cove in Darwin, Australia with only a clear acrylic tank wall for protection. That’s just one of 280 incredible bucket list experiences to uncover on the Adventure Map™. The hardest decision will be which to do first!
