We leave nothing to chance with our superior designs. Our professional cartographers study bathymetric charts and satellite images to render the high-quality nautical maps people have come to expect from us. They determine the layering process and then carefully choose the points of interest to include:
- Cities and towns
- State parks
- Major and minor roadways
- Water bodies and features (channels, islands, harbors and depths)
Your father will be fascinated by the many fine details that give our maps character and make them interesting conversation pieces.
While our nautical maps are certainly artistic renderings, they are also a lot of fun to engage with. They are great reminders of family events and once-in-a-lifetime trips and provide a nostalgic look at the places you have been and want to go. We have maps of state, regional and international areas. There are also lake maps, if being on the water is Dad’s passion.
Wooden topographic maps come in distinct sizes, dimensions and types. You can get wall maps that make attractive and interactive art for the home or office. The shapes and textures draw the eye and spur discussions.
We also offer serving trays that are perfect for chic or casual display. For something really different, there is the Coastal Blue Grey Collection of maps, with sharp contrasts and visual appeal.
The rendering of our nautical maps is what makes the difference. After our mapmaker have determined which significant details to include, the map designs are ready for careful manufacturing and assembly. Using lumber from Baltic birch, state-of-the-art lasers cut the maps and etch the numerous details. A stain is applied to amplify the wood hues, and then each layer is assembled and glued by hand. Most of the maps are then are framed in solid wood. These works are made to last a lifetime and be enjoyed for years to come.
