Note that a world map is a map of the surface of the Earth, which may be made using any of a number of different map projections. A map projection is any method of representing the surface of a sphere or other three-dimensional body on a plane.

The many ways of projecting the earth reflect diverse technical and æsthetic goals for world maps. Definition courtesy of Wikipedia. This, therefore, is a physical map of the world.
