USA Hydrological Map


United States of America Hydrological Map

Water is literally the lifeblood of any country. If you’re drawn to water, you know that how and where it flows tells the story of a place. Our USA Hydrological Map shows in fascinating detail how the country’s 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 country—even intermittent streams—and every body of water with a diameter greater than 6 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.

The Black and Blue colors are 2nd Edition prints.
The Green color is 1st Edition prints.

  • 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 (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.

    Frame-Add a thin wood frame to your order and your Fine Art Paper print will come mounted.Click here to order

    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.

    Happy Customer

    I ordered the 30x40 US hydrologic map as a gift. My boyfriend saw a smaller version in an REI. It was fun to surprise him with this for his birthday. The print arrived quickly and beautifully. The paper quality is fantastic and the print crisp! My dad is making a Walnut frame in which to display this. We can’t wait to put it up on the wall! Thanks Muir Way!

    do one ALL North America

    I love your map, can you expand it to all of North America… Same scale as the Raven Map of North America.. (now out of print) they have one about your scale as well, of just the lower 48. You folks should be familiar with them. You both have a fine product. Thank you.
