The Great Map

National Maritime Museum

The Great Map–the largest world map in Europe–is a walkable self-guided exhibition in the main atrium of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England. An custom tablet application brings British maritime history to life through 1000 years of real-time sea voyages that visitors may follow around the map. Live feeds of weather patterns and ship locations communicate the essential role of the maritime industry today, while colorful models of maritime vessels provide interactivity for younger kids.
