Travel Back in Time with our Vintage Shaded Relief Maps of South America

Some of South America's earliest historical maps stretch back over a century. Our faithful reproductions preserve the map layouts while enhancing their features with modern data and design. Some popular map prints include the 1922 shaded relief map and the 1950 shaded relief map.

We created our historical map art with 3D effects by applying Digital Elevation Data and adding shaded relief to the landscape of the original maps. We print the shading directly on the paper and is not the result of the map protruding from the surface. The result is a display that instantly stands out in any room environment. 

Explore the Waterways of an Entire Continent with our Hydrological Maps

South America is home to some of the world's most interesting lakes and rivers that carve their way through rugged landscapes and provide crucial water sources for people and wildlife. The Amazon River, the world's second-longest and by far the largest by water volume, is the most prominent, flowing through nine countries and nurturing the incredibly biodiverse Amazon Rainforest. 

Our hydrological maps also feature the Paraná River, one of the longest rivers in the world, which runs through Brazil, Paraguay, and Argentina. Lake Titicaca, nestled high in the Andes between Peru and Bolivia, holds the world's highest navigable lake title. Numerous glacial lakes in Patagonia punctuate the continent's southern region.

The thickness of the lines on the hydrological map denoting rivers and streams correlates with their Strahler number, which measures and classifies their size according to the hierarchical order of tributaries rather than their actual physical size.
