Raised Relief Maps are superior visual references that give a new perspective. Not only do these maps show you the beauty of the land, they allow you to touch a scaled representation of the mountains and valleys. Fully three-dimensional, these vacuum-formed vinyl maps also 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 home or office. The perfect gift for anyone who likes to travel this region; and a wonderfully decorative and informative item for native or newcomer.

USGS Topographic Raised Relief
We have 3-dimensional maps of most of the mountainous regions of the United States. Each USGS topographic map covers 2° longitude and 1° latitude. 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.
Raised Relief Manufacturing
The Map Shop is the largest manufacturer of raised relief maps. We took over making these maps from Hubbard Scientific in 2020. They begin with a flat map printed on sturdy vinyl. They then construct a terrain model using digital elevation data from the USGS and other sources. The vinyl map is carefully registered with the terrain mold. Once the registration of the map is complete, it is 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.
