Our incredibly detailed map of North America shows the inherent beauty of the continent's system of waterways and lakes.
The width of the rivers and streams on the map are determined by their Strahler number which defines their size based on the hierarchy of tributaries. Therefore, the thickness of the lines on the map do not represent the actual size of the waterway. The lakes on the map are representative of their actual shape and size in reference to the map.
Due to limitations of data and the dimensions of the map, it does not include Greenland, Hawaii, part of the Aleutian Islands, and the Caribbean Islands east of Puerto Rico.
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.
Every print is made to order in a timely manner and packaged with care.

I spoke with someone at Muir Way because I needed to change my order and it is clear to me that the company has a commitment to creating beautiful (artworks) maps.
