Thank you for contacting the National Geographic Society.

We appreciate your interest in the fonts used in our maps. Those fonts
proprietary to the Society. They were designed by our cartographers
years ago
and have been subsequently digitized for use on today's systems. They
are not
available commercially, and are not permitted to be used by others
unless they
are producing a Society product.

I hope that this information will prove helpful.

So, doies it feel it is an open rush for these fonts cloning? ;->
