Map of Iceland, Topographical and Tour Destinations


Physical Map of Iceland 

About the Map: Designed by a Geographer and GIS Scientist

Geographical Data:  Our Iceland Wall Map was created using a combination of data including: satellite imagery, elevation, hydrology, and administration data.  The map is developed entirely using precision measurements and GIS software.    

Special Map Features:

Volcanoes:  Active and Dormant

Major Glaciers and Ice Fields:  Labeled

National Parks:  Labeled

Major Points of Interests:  Labeled

Major Airport:  Labeled

Detailed Cities, Major Roads, Rivers, and Lakes (not all are labeled)

Beautiful Cartographic Effect around the coastlines (rippled water)

Detailed Oceanography around the island to visualize the interesting continental shelf and trench formations.

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.). 

Construction:  The map is constructed as a high quality push pin map.  Choose either Photo Satin Paper or Canvas.  For additional comparisons, check out our video shown in the "Map Finish Options" section to the right on desktop or below on mobile. 

The Satin Photo Paper Finish offers a modern and smooth surface for pinning.  We mount the map on a high quality pin board using heavy machinery for a lasting bound.

For our Canvas Finish, we use premium cotton blend canvas, using archival inks, and finish the map with a protective coating that provides a satin sheen.  We mount the map on a high quality pin board for a lasting bound.

Our frames are Made in the USA and produced exclusively for our maps.
