A longtime USGS employee, John H. Renshaw, used existing topographic data of the area to create his relief map of Yosemite. He replaced the contour lines from previously created USGS topographic maps with color gradations to indicate the relief. The resulting full-color map of the park beautifully illustrated the topographic features, including rivers, roads, trails, and other points of interest.
We consider these 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. Fine art paper prints do not come framed unless you add a frame to your order.
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.
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.
Every print is made to order in a timely manner and packaged with care.

I was looking for a piece for above my desk and that I will be able to have forever. This map was the perfect item - large, beautiful, colorful (yet, subtle) and interesting to look at. High quality framing too. Thank you!!
