North Carolina Hydrological Map


North Carolina Hydrological Map

Water is literally the lifeblood of any state. If you’re drawn to water, you know that how and where it flows tells the story of a place. Our North Carolina Hydrological Map shows in fascinating detail how the state’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 state—even intermittent streams—and every body of water with a diameter greater than .2 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.

    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.

Amazing customer service and products

I ordered the North Carolina Hydrological map for my sister for Christmas. I noticed on the tracking number that the package failed to be delivered because I forgot to put the apt number on the address (totally mute fault). I called the company to see what to do and hopefully get it back in time for the holidays. They answered the phone immediately, NO AUTOMATED SYSTEM ❤, and were so kind and friendly. They immediately sent out a new package to be delivered with the apt number on it. They called me back to let me know it was all set and on the way. How amazing?! Nowadays so few companies treat their customers this kindly and with such understanding. Not to mention the hydrological map is GORGEOUS. The quality is so nice. It's a hard cardstock, not just flimsy paper or poster. I cannot wait to see how much my sister loves this gift and we will definitely be buying from Muir Way again!

North Carolina Hydrological Map

I ordered this print for my husband's office as a Christmas present. He is a civil engineer who specializes in water, so I have no doubt he will love it! The quality is even better than I anticipated, and shipping was quick. Thank you!

Awesome concept!

The site was easy to use and my item came in earlier than expected. This is a very unique idea and I know my boyfriend will love what I purchased. I can’t wait to give this gift on Christmas this year!
