What makes Muir Way maps of New Jersey unique?

When you purchase a map of New Jersey from Muir Way, you won’t get a mass-produced poster or generic print. We custom print every New Jersey map using archival inks and fine art paper certified to last 100 years. The artwork of our maps themselves is designed to bring new light to the beautiful terrain they feature. For example, our elevation maps incorporate hand-shaded relief and Digital Elevation Data with historical map terrain for a unique 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 in crisp detail. We create beautiful, heirloom-quality maps meant to last for generations.

Does my New Jersey map come framed?

It can! You can purchase your New Jersey map professionally custom-framed with real wood, or unframed if you prefer to use your own. If you’d like to purchase a framed New Jersey wall map, there are several different wood finishes to choose from. 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 New Jersey make a good gift?

Yes! Our custom-printed maps of New Jersey make the perfect gift to commemorate special occasions or as a thank-you gift for someone special.

One of our state relief maps can be a perfect graduation gift for a student about to leave home for the first time, or a reminder of home for someone from New Jersey but who no longer lives there. 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 New Jersey map?

Our maps are eye-catching from across the room and up close.

Our hydrological maps come in several colors or the classic black and white, and our geological relief maps feature vibrant colors. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to find a New Jersey map that will look right at home.

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

Our New Jersey maps are available in several different styles, including:

New Jersey relief maps - Our relief maps of New Jersey bring historical map landscapes together with modern technology to show the state’s landscapes in a new way. Using Digital Elevation Data and hand-shaded relief, we custom enhance vintage maps to create a 3D effect on a 2D surface. See New Jersey’s spectacular terrain in color on our New Jersey 1974 relief map.

New Jersey elevation maps - Our New Jersey elevation map uses Digital Elevation Data from the USGS and hand-shaded relief just like our relief maps to create a high-contrast 3-dimensional effect in stunning black and white.

New Jersey hydrological maps - Our hydrological maps showcase the intricate network of waterways, from sprawling lakes to narrow tributaries that flow into larger rivers. Trace New Jersey’s waterways on our New Jersey hydrological map and you’ll see every body of water greater than 0.2 mi in diameter. What makes our hydrological maps unique? 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. Map available in black, blue, or green. Want to see the ‘big picture?’ See our Mid Atlantic regional hydrological map.

Enhanced vintage New Jersey maps - Enjoy the history and charm of vintage maps in a new way with our New Jersey 1883 map. Unlike our elevation maps, Muir Way historical maps don’t feature enhanced elevation effects, but they do feature a record of history beautifully restored to retain its vintage charm without the wear and tear. Our vintage New Jersey maps are also custom printed using archival materials.

What are some prominent features on the map of New Jersey?

New Jersey has a variety of landscapes. The northeast is heavily urbanized but the northwest is filled with rugged hills. In the southeast, huge swaths of pine forests make up the Pine Barrens. The south-central part of the state has rolling hills and horse farms.

The Pine Barrens are the largest remaining stand of Atlantic coastal pine barrens. The soil here is sandy and nutrient-poor, making it difficult to farm. However, the area still supports a diverse ecosystem.

Along the Hudson River in northeastern New Jersey are the Palisades Cliffs. These basalt cliffs are some of the most striking features in the north of the state.

The Delaware Water Gap is located in the western part of the state where the Delaware River cuts through a range of the Appalachian Mountains. It is a popular area for hiking trails and rock climbing.

What are the regions in New Jersey?

New Jersey has four main geographical regions:

  • The Atlantic Coastal Plain - Characterized by gently rolling hills, this area covers the southern part of New Jersey. Much of this area is less than 100 feet above sea level. In the east, the landscape is made up of pine forests and salt marshes. Along the Atlantic coast, the salt marshes are more plentiful. Shallow lagoons and meadows characterize this area too. Along the Delaware River in the west and southwest part of the area, the soil is fertile and contains many farms.
  • The Piedmont - Only about 20 miles long, this small strip of land covers only about 1/5 of the state. The Piedmont includes many of the state’s industrial cities. Many of New Jersey's major rivers run through this area as well.
  • The New England Upland - The New England Upland includes flat-topped ridges of rock. This area is characterized by the many beautiful lakes nestled among the ridges.
  • The Ridge and Valley - This mountainous area includes the Kittatinny Mountains. They run parallel to New Jersey's northwestern border. The Delaware River has cut through these mountains to form the Delaware Water Gap. The area is characterized by shale and limestone formations along with dairy farms and apple orchards.
