I'm not sure what you're asking. The world map hasn't changed - you can see the button labeled "World Map" that you click to open it.
I think you're referring to the square mini-map, which is surrounded by the compass frame. The mini-map shows only a small segment of the world map - the town or region you're currently in.
As for the design being different depending on the race, yes, each race has its own User Interface. The orc UI is crude stone and wood, the human UI is nicer wood and a steel border, and the elven UI is natural, green, and leafy.
