World Vegetation (Black Ocean)
map shows the world's forests, grasslands, farmlands, and deserts in
great detail. It reveals the unparalleled expanse of the Amazon rain
forest, the much smaller blocks of comparable forests in Africa and
Asia, and the deforestation of both.
The content on land of our two versions is the same, except that the
black version does not include city names at all, and omits some small
country names. Black has the effect of making neighboring colors appear
brighter and richer, and world vegetation more graphically memorable.
Sixteen colors including six classes of forest land give the map an unusual richness.
