USA Hydrological Map


United States of America Hydrological Map

Water is literally the lifeblood of any country. If you’re drawn to water, you know that how and where it flows tells the story of a place. Our USA Hydrological Map shows in fascinating detail how the country’s rivers and streams flow and interconnect, merge and diverge, carrying life to the land. The flow of water also has an inherent aesthetic elegance that our map captures beautifully.

It’s all in the details. Our map depicts every river in the country—even intermittent streams—and every body of water with a diameter greater than 6 miles. For an extra aesthetic touch, we apply a method called the Strahler Stream Order to show the hierarchy of streams as they flow from their source—rivers are shown thicker as they acquire the flow of tributaries. We think it enhances a sense of the interconnectedness of our waterways.

In our Hydrology Series, you’ll not only find your favorite rivers and lakes, but you’ll also be able to trace their origins and outflow and appreciate the beauty of their connections.

The Black and Blue colors are 2nd Edition prints.
The Red and Green colors are 1st Edition prints.

    We consider our maps to be works of art, so we print and frame them accordingly. We offer two choices of print surfaces: fine-art archival paper and stretched canvas.

    Every map is custom printed. We have no inventory. Only when we receive your order do we produce your print on our 12-color giclée printer, using top-quality archival inks that will never fade.

    Fine Art Paper (Does not include frame)-Our archival paper is museum-quality, 100% cotton, acid-free, and certified to last 100 years. This assures sharp details, true colors, and exceptional durability. Order your maps on archival paper if you intend to frame them.

    Canvas Gallery Wrap-If you prefer a frameless look, order your map on stretched canvas, which offers a bit more depth and texture. We use archival canvas, gallery-wrapped and varnished, stretched onto a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.

5th grade teacher stoked!

Jared and your team, Thank you so much for the US Hydrological Map. While I am a bit of a map geek and love maps as pieces of art, I also teach 5th grade US history. This map is a fantastic tool to reference in our study of physical landscapes and human geography of the US. Our students have really enjoyed this reference. Thank you for adding to our learning and appreciation of the natural landscape. We hope to invest in a few more of these maps in the near future. -Brian

Beautiful Map!

Ordered a 24x30 black and white poster on fine art paper. I was extremely pleased by the quality of the artwork. The paper is high quality and didn't feel like it would crease when unrolling it. The package was neatly rolled up and you were able to tell that they were as careful as possible with the packaging. Can't wait to hang this up in our new home! We definitely will be ordering a few more prints from Muir Way as gifts for this upcoming holiday season. Thanks again for the quality product!
