Raised Relief Maps

Map Shop is the sole manufacturer of Hubbard Scientific raised relief maps and we offer a large collection. Hubbard Scientific began making 3D maps in the late 1960s, which continued until we took over production in 2020.

Raised relief maps are synthetic maps that are vacuum formed over a mold to show a three-dimensional representation of the terrain. These maps aid in the visual recognition of the peaks around you, so you can better identify and navigate them.

This section is divided into States Raised Relief (maps of entire U.S. states), Region Raised Relief Map (made from USGS topographic sectionals) and National Parks. Our raised relief maps offer accurate three-dimensional representation of nature and the landscape, showing all the features of the particular geographical area. Raised relief maps are sometimes referred to as three-dimensional maps. Most of our catalog also incorporates shaded relief to enhance topographic diversity. Please contact us if we can help you find a particular raised relief map since other options may be available, but note that custom raised relief maps are not cost effective unless high quantities are ordered.
