More About 3D Raised Relief Maps

Raised Relief Maps are superior visual references that give a new perspective. Not only do these maps show you the beauty of the land but they also allow you to touch a scaled representation of the mountains and valleys. Fully three-dimensional, these vacuum-formed vinyl maps use color and shading to represent elevation changes so you get a better understanding of the terrain and landforms. These maps are unique wall decor for homes or offices. The perfect gift for anyone who likes to travel to this region and a wonderfully decorative and informative item for natives and newcomers alike. Click here to learn more about 3D Raised Relief maps and how they are made.

The Map Shop is the largest manufacturer of 3D raised relief maps, under the Hubbard Scientific brand. Click here to learn more about the history of Hubbard Scientific, which spans over 60 years. We begin with a flat map printed on sturdy vinyl. A corresponding custom terrain model mold is carved, using digital elevation data. The vinyl map is carefully registered on the terrain mold, then heated and vacuum-formed over the terrain model. The result is a truly exceptional visual and tactile reference. You will be proud to display one of these raised relief maps in any setting.


Maps are printed on 15-mil vinyl and heat-formed over a 3D mold. All our Raised Relief maps ship flat to preserve the raised 3D effect.


Maps are printed on 15-mil vinyl and heat-formed over a 3D mold. We then mount the map and install it into a recycled wood molding. Glass is *not* included so you can touch the map. All framed maps include pre-installed hanging hardware for easy installation. Custom shipping crates are built for each framed raised relief map.
