    The "top of the world" perspective is unusual but just what my marine science colleague wanted as a gift. The coloring and topographical perspective is terrific. We decided it was a mistake to get the "wallzilla adhesive format" version of the map, however, as sections of the back of the map stick to each other when the map is removed to relocate to another wall, and it's very hard to un-stick.
