About Our Maps

Vintage Topographic Maps

The products in the Vintage Topographic Map series represent high-quality reproductions of vintage USGS topographic quadrangles from the late-1800s to the mid-1900s. The majority of reproductions in this series are mosaics, which means two or more original maps were stitched together to make a new map. In addition to the mosaic process, the maps are digitally restored using a range of techniques, such as:

Color correction and text enhancement

Fixing tears, seams, and folds

Removing JPEG and other scanning artifacts

General touch-ups and aesthetic augmentations 

 

 

 

Modern Relief Map Series

The Modern Relief Map series comprises custom cartographic art created using geospatial and design tools applied to available satellite elevation data. As they are known in the scientific community, Digital Elevation Models are used to display the differences in elevation in a particular landscape.

Prints in this series can be custom designed to fit your specifications and can be printed on various media.

 

Vintage Relief Map Series

The Vintage Relief Map series, in a way, is a combination of the first two series. Creating these shaded relief maps requires both a restored vintage map and a digital elevation map, fused together with advanced 3D modelling techniques. The result is a beautiful image wherein the landscape appears to extrude right off the page. 

These maps are printed in 2D (yes, we wish we could 3D-print these maps) and can be custom made for most locations in the U.S. and select locations around the world.
All map prints are available in multiple media:
Premium Photo Paper Option: Ultra Premium 10 mil Photo Paper (Luster)
Stretched Canvas OptionAcid-Free Poly-Cotton Canvas Stretched Over Wood Frame
