2010 - 2011 World Heritage map now available
The latest version of the World Heritage Map, produced by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and National Geographic Maps with support from Ministry of Culture of the Kingdom of Bahrain and the United Nations Foundation, can now be ordered for a modest fee from the World Heritage Centre website to recover mailing costs.
The Map is an extremely valuable learning and awareness-raising tool that gives a rich and initial contact with the World Heritage concept, allowing UNESCO to communicate its work in this field on a large scale. The original versions of the Map are English, French and Spanish, but through the partnership with National Geographic and its local magazines previous editions of the Map have so far been published in Czech, Danish, Finnish, Norwegian, Romanian, Serbian and Swedish language versions.
This large format full-colour Map features the 911 World Heritage sites and brief explanations of the World Heritage Convention and the World Heritage conservation programmes, as well as superb photos of World Heritage sites with explanatory captions. It is available from the UNESCO World Heritage Centre in English, French and Spanish. The dimensions of the map are 78 cm by 50 cm (31 in. by 20 in.). It can also be downloaded free of charge from the website.
