Hydrological Map of Canada


Hydrological Map of Canada

First Edition of 250 Hand-Numbered Maps

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 Canada 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.

    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.

A lovely image! (Some glitches w delivery).

The map just came in the mail! The image is so interesting -- my partner and I just looked at it for a long time. I am a geographer, so maps mean a lot to me. I will get it framed and hang it up soon!

Worth the Long, Long Wait

The map is lovely. I think it will be a treasured object for the recipient this Christmas. Two things: Muir Way, maybe don’t put a full product description right on the outside of the package. It kind of spoils the surprise when the recipient is the one who answers the door when the delivery comes. Second, customers, if you are ordering from Canada, allow LOTS and LOTS of time for this to make its way north. In my case, about a month from order to delivery. Looking forward to more great (plain brown wrapper) maps.
