Ohio Elevation & Shaded Relief Map Prints

Whether you are from Ohio, like to visit, or hope to see the Cuyahoga Valley someday, our custom printed Ohio wall maps will bring the Buckeye State to life. Our maps are beautifully rendered from a combination of historical data, modern technology, and hand design. From our eye-catching elevation maps and geological relief maps to our meticulously restored historical maps, every map of Ohio we offer reflects the high quality and attention to detail our customers have come to love and expect from Muir Way. See why a map of Ohio from Muir Way is more than your typical wall map.

What makes Muir Way maps of Ohio unique?

When you purchase a map of Ohio from Muir Way, you are not purchasing a mass-produced poster or generic print. We custom print every Ohio 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 Ohio map come framed?

It can! You can purchase your Ohio map professionally custom-framed with real wood, or unframed if you prefer to use your own. If you’d like to purchase a framed Ohio 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 Ohio make a good gift?

Yes! Our custom-printed maps of Ohio make the perfect gift for outdoor enthusiasts, to commemorate special occasions, or as a thank-you gift for someone special. Memorialize the experience of a special holiday to Lake Erie, the Ohio Caverns, or any of the other amazing Ohio landscapes. 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 Ohio 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 Ohio map?

Our maps are eye-catching from across the room and up close. Hang a framed wall map as a central focus or purchase several maps in a similar style or from a particular region and arrange them near each other for a complementary series. 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 an Ohio map that will look right at home.

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

Our Ohio maps are available in several different styles, including:

Ohio relief maps - Our relief maps of Ohio 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 Ohio’s spectacular terrain in vibrant colors on our Ohio 1920 Relief map.

Ohio elevation maps - Our Ohio 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.

Ohio hydrological maps - Our hydrological maps showcase the intricate network of waterways, from sprawling lakes to narrow tributaries that flow into larger rivers. Trace Ohio’s waterways on our Ohio 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 Great Lakes Regional Hydrological map and our Ohio Water Resource Region Hydrological map.

Enhanced vintage Ohio maps - Enjoy the history and charm of vintage maps in a new way with our Ohio 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 Ohio maps are also custom printed using archival materials.

What are some prominent features on the map of Ohio?

Ohio has a variety of landscapes, from fertile farmlands to the rugged forests of the southeastern part of the state. In the east central part of the state are the Hocking Hills. These sandstone cliffs include waterfalls and hemlock covered gorges. They were created by millions of years of uplift and stream erosion.

In the east of the state are the Dysart Woods, one of the only remaining tracks of old growth forest in Ohio. The trees here are 300-400 years old and contain a vast ecosystem that is unique to old growth forests.

In the north of the state is Lake Erie, one of the five Great Lakes and the 11th largest lake in the world, measured by surface area. Filled with amazing beaches and dunes, it is the southernmost of the Great Lakes.

What are the regions in Ohio?

Ohio has five main geographical regions:

  • The Great Lakes Plains - Located in the north along the Lake Erie shore, these flat plains were created during the last ice age. They make excellent farmland and are also home to Cleveland and Toledo, Ohio’s largest shipping ports.
  • The Till Plains - These gently rolling plains, interspersed by hills, is one of the most fertile farming regions in the United States. The Till Plains are the beginning of the Corn Belt. This region includes Campbell Hill, the highest point in the state. From its height of 1,550 feet, the land gently slopes down to the Ohio River, which is the lowest point in the state.
  • The Appalachian Plateau - The Appalachian or Allegheny Plateau covers the eastern part of Ohio. The northern half of this area consists of rolling hills and valleys. The southern part is made up of steep hills and valleys. It is the most rugged area in the state. Characterized by thin soil, the area is poor farmland. It is rich in mineral deposits, however.
  • The Bluegrass Region - This region, which comes up from Kentucky, is hilly and gently rolling. It is a small, triangular region of southern Ohio.
  • Lake Erie Shoreline - The shoreline lines 312 miles of Lake Erie from east to west. The eastern shoreline includes ten to eighteen foot clay bluffs. The western shoreline is made up of clay and sand beaches.
