USGS Regional Raised Relief Maps
Hubbard Scientific is the largest manufacturer of Raised Relief Maps in the United States. They begin with a flat map printed on sturdy vinyl. They then construct a terrain model using digital elevation data from the USGS (United States Geological Survey) 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.
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.
USGS raised relief maps include scale, elevation, contour lines and major cities.
