This is the Index-Page with maps of several countries of our world with place names in original scripts.

This page in German / diese Seite auf deutsch.
The maps pages linked here are details from our map of the world with original scripts, which was issued by Planet Poster Editions in 2006. The special feature of these maps consists in the names of the localities being given in their local scripts. Worldwise there are mote than 30 different scripts in use at official state level (11 of which alone in India).
It is very difficult in the world wide web and in the literature to find the correct local spellings for localities in southern Asia, northern Canada (Nunavut) and Ethiopia. In dicitionaries, names of localities are generally not contained. It is easier to find in a well manages and rich library like in Göttingen University to find the correct spellings in Telugu or Kannada for absolutely rare and outdated terms than the spellings of the metropoles of Bangalore, Hyderabad or Madras, which belong to the biggest cities of the world.
All maps are screenshots taken from our map of the world file. This map costs 11,50 Euro, it is presented in detail at www.planetposter.de and can be ordered at www.wissenladen.de.
