About The Map: The USA National Parks Map Lite Terrain Edition provides a comprehensive reference to all of the National Park Sites across the USA, Historical Towns, and Remarkable Places in the USA!
This USA travel map features a beautiful impression of 3D dimensions for the elevation and terrain of the USA. We modeled the terrain of the country using specialized GIS software and accurate USGS topological data. 3D shading effects provide visual depth in the map, and natural landscape colorization is used to illustrate deserts, greenlands, and mountainous areas.
Created by a professional geographer/cartographer, the research and design for this USA map took over a year. We worked with official National Park Service data to uniquely display and reference ALL of the 600+ sites in the USA. Every reference has been thoroughly researched, symbolized, and carefully labeled on the map. A unique referencing system has been developed for areas that have many NPS sites and a unique colored coded label system has been created on the side.
Our USA travel maps are truly one of a kind. Each map includes fascinating details that encourage exploration and self-discovery.
What's Included: 500 Map pins and pin case. Each map is individually made to order. We prepare the map with the hanging hardware so it's ready to use and enjoy. The map is nicely packaged and shipped in a large box.
