Geographical Data: Our California wall art map was created using a combination of satellites and developed entirely using numbers, measurements, and GIS software.

This California map uses detailed terrain and landscape modeling design. The detailed information throughout this map is the result of years of geographic research and was created by a professional Cartographer/Geographer.

We use the USGS LandSat satellite to visualize the landscape on land and NOAA's bathymetry data to visualize the elevation and topography of the sea floor. The famous Space Shuttle Radiometric Topographic Mission, SRTM Data, is used to gather the elevation height for the land. With the data, we applied a hill shade to visualize the shading effects (at 3 p.m. everywhere on Earth). This is most visible in the largest mountain regions.

Learn More: Check out our blog on Shaded Relief Maps to learn more about the art and science that goes into creating these beautiful maps.

Product Format: This is a flat map with rich terrain depth to visualize the landscape. Although it looks 3-Dimensional it is produced as a flat map.
