In this NASA’s Landsat 8 satellite image, the lush forests of Egmont National Park, on New Zealand’s North Island, contrast with the pasturelands outside the circular park boundaries. The unique shape of the park results from its first protection in 1881, which specified that a forest reserve would extend in a 6 miles (10 km) radius from the summit of Mt. Egmont.
Also known by its Maori name – Taranaki - Mt. Egmont stands 8,260 feet (2,518 m) tall and it is one of the world’s most symmetric volcanoes. The volcano began forming 70,000 years ago, and last erupted in 1755. At the top center of this image offered by Customaps, the town of New Plymouth stands out from the surrounding agricultural lands as a gray patch. Other smaller towns stretch out across the plain on the inland side of the volcano.

- PEEL & STICK WALL MURALS:
Our wall murals are made of a self-adhesive thin polyester fabric material. They have the look and feel of a very thin canvas and do not require use of wallpaper paste or any extra glue for hanging. Our map murals can easily be removed, leaving no trace or sticky residue on 99% of any surface! They can be moved and re-applied over and over again, as the adhesive does not weaken or strengthen over time. Stick your map for a day – or stick it for a decade – still removes with no issues. Our material is green, nontoxic and safe. We protect them with a transparent laminate, which allows you to clean your map with a damp sponge.
Note: it is recommended to apply your wall mural on LOW or NO VOC paints.
