United States Topography Map Poster - John Muir Edition


USA Typography Map 

A Physical map of the United States derived from Detailed Satellite Imagery and surrounding Ocean Bathometry.

About The MapThis map is a compilation of over a billion points of data using the Aster Satellite to measure the elevation and topography of the United States.  We applied a hillshade effect to illustrate the shadows of elevated features in the terrain (mountains) at 3 p.m. (consistent time) across the USA.  The LandSat 9 satellite is used to model the landscape (vegetation) and NOAA Bathometry data from sonar is used to illustrate the seafloor.    

The geographic referencing is compiled from a wide range of authoritive data resources including USGS, US Census, ESRI, NOAA, and the National Park Service (NPS). 

Our United States Elevation Map is named after John Muir, who was a pioneer of conservation and preservation.  The map uses shaded relief to highlight the elevation/topography of the United States alongside important geographical features such as state capitals, major rivers, national parks, and more. 

Primary Colors: Natural colors as depicted from satellite imagery from space.
