Rio Grande Regional Hydrological Map

Our series of regional hydrological maps show the Water Resource Regions of the USA which is the first level of classification used by the USGS. Its purpose is to divide the US into smaller hydrologic units which are then subdivided. The 21 major Water Resource Regions contain the drainage area of either a major river or the combined drainage areas of a series of rivers.

Water is literally the lifeblood of our country. If you’re drawn to water, you know that how and where it flows tells the story of a place. The Rio Grande Region contains the Rio Grande Basin, San Luis Valley, North Plains, Plains of San Agustin, Mimbres River, Estancia, Jornada del Muerto, Tularosa Valley, and Salt Basin. This map shows in fascinating detail how the 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 Water Resource Region—even intermittent streams—and every body of water with a diameter greater than .2 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.

  • Made in the USA

    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 - 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. 

    Frames (w/ Fine Art Paper) - Our thin hardwood frames are handmade from real Maple or Walnut, not pressed wood with veneer. Fine Art Paper prints will come mounted behind a clear acrylic, with mounting hardware attached to it. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your frame to arrive.

    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 around a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.

Excellent Print!

I did not get a chance to look at the print until I actually dropped it off at the framer. As soon as it rolled out I immediately knew it was extremely high-quality. The contrast of each river system pops off the page (I purchased the black) and is beautiful. Will be a focal piece in my house. Very pleased.

Perfect gift for a civil engineer

I got this hydrologic map for my boyfriend who’s a civil engineer. He works hard to take care of the Great Lakes through design and this is a reminder for why he does it.

Hydrology Series

The quality of the product is exceptional. I was astounded by the meticulous detail in the hydrological map. As a sixth-generation Floridian who grew up on a family farm, I feel a deep connection with our natural environment and understand the importance of conservation.
