CGE, Standard Time Zones Of The World

CGE Bespoke Map

This was quite a simple idea for a map for the School education services who purchase maps that are educational and can compliment the school curriculum.

This map shows very clearly the standard time zones of the World, in a simple but striking way. This is a really simple way to show students what happens as Earth rotates on its axis, it moves about 15 degrees every 60 minutes. After 24 hours, it has completed a full circle rotation of 360 degrees.

The scientists used this information to divide the planet into 24 sections or time zones. Each time zone is 15 degrees of longitude wide…both of which are shown on the World Map.

We work with a lot of agencies who need cartographers to produce maps, take a look at our bespoke map services.
