What makes Muir Way maps of Rhode Island unique?

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

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

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

Our Rhode Island maps are available in several different styles, including:

Rhode Island relief maps - Our relief maps of Rhode Island 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 Rhode Island’s spectacular terrain in color on our Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut 1975 Relief map and our Providence, RI 1947 Relief map.

Rhode Island elevation maps - Our Rhode Island 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.

Rhode Island hydrological maps - Our hydrological maps showcase the intricate network of waterways, from sprawling lakes to narrow tributaries that flow into larger rivers. Trace Rhode Island’s waterways on our Rhode Island 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 New England Regional Hydrological map.

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

What are some prominent features on the map of Rhode Island?

One of the prominent features of Rhode Island is Mohegan Bluffs. These large, clay cliffs are located on the southern shore of Block Island. Filled with hiking trails and wildlife, the cliffs look out into the Atlantic Ocean. Block Island was formed thousands of years ago as the glaciers receded.

In the southwest part of the state is Burlingame State Park. The park is 3,100 acres of rocky woodland. It surrounds Watchaug Pond, a kettle pond that is one of the biggest lakes in the state. The area is full of magnificent wildlife and scenic views.

In the eastern part of the state is Goosewing Beach Preserve. Managed by The Nature Conservancy, the Preserve is home to rare birds. The Preserve is a mix of coastal pond, beach and dune environments.

What are the regions in Rhode Island?

Rhode Island has two main geographical regions:

  • The Coastal Lowland - Part of the larger Coastal Lowland Region that covers the entire New England coast, these lowlands cover the southwestern 2/3 of the state. The landscape is characterized by low, rounded slopes with few trees. The land is more rugged in the west and has some forested woodlands.
  • The Eastern New England Upland - This area covers the northwestern corner of Rhode Island. The landscape here is marked by rolling hills and higher elevations. The land rises from about 200 feet above sea level to over 800 feet above sea level in the northwest. The highest point in the state, Jerimoth Hill, is in this region. Many small lakes and ponds are scattered among the hills of the Eastern New England Upland.
