That is about 100 miles east to west and 70 miles north to south, depending on the latitude of the map. Our USGS maps use shaded relief and are a wonderful visual reference. They are appropriate for real estate offices, travel agencies, outdoor enthusiasts and classroom use.

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.
