Antarctica 1939 Shaded Relief Map

Rated 5.0 out of 5
Based on 5 reviews
$ 89.00 USD
Fine Art Paper – Flat 2D Print
Frame
Description

We created this map with the illusion of 3D by applying Digital Elevation Data and meticulously adding shaded relief to the landscape of the original 1939 Antarctica map. The shading is printed on the paper and not a result of the map protruding from the surface.

Originally produced by Department of the Interior, Canberra, Australia

Please Note: Text on the map can be difficult to read due to the small font size and the age of the map. In areas where the relief shading covers the text, the underlying text is not legible. We suggest the largest size map for better details though the text may still be covered in the darker areas.

Sensational!

Just spectacular, both the image itself and the quality of production. Beautiful paper stock.

I'll be manually adding my 1300km glaciology traverse route out of Casey Station in Antarctica in 1986 and then getting this framed along with my Antarctic Medal.

Delivery to Australia - back to Canberra where the original map was (likely) made in 5 days!

Veyr happy with this!
