The latest version of the World Heritage map, produced by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and National Geographic Maps with the generous support of Russian Federation, can now be ordered for a modest fee from the World Heritage Centre website. The featured image on the Map presents Saint Petersburg, where the next session of the World Heritage Committee will be held (June/July 2012).

The World Heritage map is an educational visual tool, allowing UNESCO to communicate its work in this field on a large scale. It is especially important since print documents, accessible to everyone, are an essential communication tool.

The map features the 936 World Heritage properties, brief explanations of the World Heritage Convention and World Heritage conservation programmes, as well as superb photos of World Heritage sites with explanatory captions. The dimensions of the map are 78 cm by 50 cm (31 by 20 in.), and it is available in English, French, and Spanish versions. A Russian version will also be produced this year.

A copy of the map may be ordered on this website.
