This 1997 issue of Mauritius depicts Admiral Mahe de La Bourdonnais (1699-1753) and a map with a route from France to India. The map does not include a route to Mahe on the west coast of India. This is the town where Admiral La Bourdonnais had the "Mahe" added to his name by virtue of his conquest of it.

Admiral Mahe de La Bourdonnais is shown on this stamp because he was Governor of "Isle de France", the French name for Mauritius at the time, for five years.

On August 9, 1974 Singapore issued a set of 3 stamps (S.G. #s 238-40) to publicize the U.N.'s World Population Year. The backgrounds of these stamps are made up of a series of stylized outlines of upper human torsos.

The 75c value features a world map defined by the shading of the torsos. From a normal viewing distance, the map is clearly visible. Under magnification, however, the torsos are visible, but the map is not clearly discernible. North and Central America are shown on the close up pic.

On June 21, 1991 Poland issued a stamp commemorating the 30th Anniversary of the enactment of the U.N.'s Antarctic Treaty. There are 54 signatory nations of the Treaty. The map shown signifies the territory involved, i.e. 60 degrees latitude south.

From Wikipedia, "The treaty sets aside Antarctica as a scientific preserve, establishes freedom of scientific investigation, and bans military activity on the continent."

This May 6, 2011 souvenir sheet of Estonia anticipates the bicentenary (2016) of the Struve Geodetic Arc. One stamp depicts F. G. W. Struve (1793-1864), and the other stamp shows the Tartu Observatory (1821). The red, vertical line is the meridian, and the ragged white line is the chain of survey triangulations.

A posting on page 34 of this thread shows Moldova's issue for the bicentenary of the Struve Geodetic Arc.

From Wikipedia, "The Struve Geodetic Arc is a chain of survey triangulations stretching from Hammerfest in Norway to the Black Sea, through ten countries and over 2820 km., which yielded the first accurate measurement of a meridian. The chain was established and used by German-born Russian scientist Friedrich G. W. von Struve in the years 1816 to 1855 to establish the exact size and shape of the earth. At that time, the chain passed merely through two countries: Sweden-Norway and the Russian Empire. The Arc's first point is located in Tartu Observatory in Estonia, where Struve conducted much of his research."
