Connecticut Map Prints, Hydrological & Elevation Maps

Whether you’re from Connecticut, have taken a special trip there, attended one of its prestigious universities, or are looking for a unique gift, our custom printed Connecticut wall maps will bring the heritage of southern New England to your home or office.

What makes Muir Way maps of Connecticut unique?

When you purchase a Connecticut wall map from Muir Way, you get far more than just a poster or mass-produced print. In addition to custom printing every Connecticut map using archival inks and fine art paper certified to last 100 years, our map artwork is designed to bring new light to the beautiful terrain it features. Our elevation maps incorporate hand-shaded relief and Digital Elevation Data with historical map terrain, creating a 3D effect on a flat surface, and our hydrological maps depict every river in the state--even intermittent streams--and every body of water over 0.2 miles in diameter. The meticulous craftsmanship and design we bring to our maps creates heirloom quality artwork to last for generations.

Does my Connecticut map come framed?

It can! Our Connecticut maps are available professionally custom-framed with real wood, or unframed if you prefer to use your own. If you’d like to purchase your Connecticut wall map framed, you can choose from several different colors and wood finishes. If you’d prefer to use your own frame, all of our maps come in standard sizes for easy gift giving.

Does a Muir Way map of Connecticut make a good gift?

Yes! Our custom-printed maps of CT make the perfect gift for anniversaries, weddings, college graduations, Christmas presents, or as a thank-you gift for someone special. We stand by the quality and craftsmanship of our maps and are honored when our customers choose to give them as gifts to last for generations to come. Our maps also make beautiful corporate gifts that will remind your clients or colleagues of you every time they see it.

Where should I display my Connecticut map?

Our maps are designed to catch your eye from afar or up close. Hang a framed wall map as a central focus, or purchase several regional maps and arrange them near each other for a complementary series. Our hydrological maps come in several colors or the quintessential black and white, and our geological relief maps feature brilliant colors. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to find a map that will look right at home.

What are the different types of maps of Connecticut available on Muir Way?

Our Connecticut maps are available in several different styles, including:

Connecticut relief maps - Our relief maps of Connecticut combine historical map landscapes with modern technology to showcase Connecticut’s geography in a new and exciting way. Using Digital Elevation Data and hand-shaded relief, we custom enhance vintage maps to create a striking 3D effect on a flat surface. See the different regions of Connecticut on our 1974 Connecticut relief map, or broaden your view to include neighboring states in our Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut 1975 relief map.

Connecticut elevation maps - Our state of Connecticut elevation map also uses Digital Elevation Data from the USGS to create a high-contrast 3-dimensional effect, this time in stunning black and white, for a classy art piece that really “pops”.

Connecticut hydrological maps - Our hydrological maps are designed to look beautiful from across a room and to deliver meticulous detail up close. Trace rivers and lakes on our Connecticut hydrology map and you’ll see every single river and intermittent stream, as well as all bodies of water greater than 0.2 mi in diameter. Want to see the bigger picture? Try our New England regional hydrological map. For extra clarity, we apply a method called the Strahler Stream Order to show the hierarchy of streams as they flow from their source, with rivers shown thicker as they acquire the flow of tributaries. Maps available in black, blue, or green.

Enhanced vintage Connecticut maps - If you like vintage maps, you’ll love our regional 1883 map of Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Unlike our relief maps, Muir Way historical maps don’t feature elevation, but what they do feature is a record of history beautifully restored to retain its vintage charm without the wear & tear. Our vintage Connecticut maps are also custom printed using archival materials to preserve a snapshot of New England history for years to come.

What are some prominent features on the map of Connecticut?

From beautiful coastal beaches to the central hills to its low mountains in the north, Connecticut packs a lot of variegated terrain and beautiful geography into a small package. Bordering Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York, Connecticut shares a large portion of its perimeter with the Atlantic Ocean and is home to several rivers.

Nearly 700 square miles of Connecticut’s 5,544 square miles is water. See Connecticut’s intricate network of waterways on our hydrology maps, including the Connecticut River, Quinnipiac River, and Farmington River, and trace their paths toward the ocean.

Though not considered ‘mountainous’ as a state like Colorado might be, Connecticut does contain a portion of the Berkshires in its northwestern corner, gradually losing elevation until reaching Long Island Sound. Our Relief maps make it easy to see the stark contrast between the mountain peaks at the western border of the state and the beaches and lower elevations further east and toward the coast.
