Hydrological Map of North America

47 reviews
Our incredibly detailed map of North America shows the inherent beauty of the continent's system of waterways and lakes. 

The width of the rivers and streams on the map are determined by their Strahler number which defines their size based on the hierarchy of tributaries. Therefore, the thickness of the lines on the map do not represent the actual size of the waterway.  The lakes on the map are representative of their actual shape and size in reference to the map. 

Due to limitations of data and the dimensions of the map, it does not include Greenland, Hawaii, part of the Aleutian Islands, and the Caribbean Islands east of Puerto Rico. 

  • 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 - 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. 

    Frames (w/ Fine Art Paper) - Our thin hardwood frames are handmade from real Maple or Walnut, not pressed wood with veneer. Fine Art Paper prints will come mounted behind a clear acrylic, with mounting hardware attached to it. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your frame to arrive.

    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 around a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.

    Very pleased with the product

    I am very impressed with the quality of the product and the detail specifically. The price point of $80 certainly had me hesitant to buy, but I am glad I did as I have gotten many compliments on the framed product. Very happy

    Hydrology dreams come true

    Our son is a water resources engineer, and we got the North America blue map for him for Christmas. Now I want one too! We live in Oregon, and you do make state maps, but it seemed foolish to have the rivers stop just because the sign said “Entering Washington.” The map is hydrology and geology and no politics. And the quality of the mapping and the paper are just elegant.

    Thank you for your review! You may be interested in our Regional Hydrology Series which shows the entire drainage area of each region, including the Pacific Northwest, with their natural borders as opposed to political borders.
