Mercury 2D Relief Map
Vintage Shaded Relief Map of the Planet Mercury - 2D Flat Print
These are NOT 3D maps. They are 2D maps printed of a flat surface. There is no guarantee that small keys and labels will be legible, especially in shaded and mountainous areas and depending on the size of the print. These are decorative maps, not for study, reference or close-ups.
ABOUT THE MAP
Using the some advanced techniques, USGS and NASAS derived a global digital elevation model (DEM) of Mercury. The Mercury Surface, Space Environment, Geochemistry, and Ranging (MESSENGER) spacecraft launched on August 3rd, 2004, it entered orbit around Mercury on March 11, 2011 and ended its mission on April 30th, 2015 when it deliberately plunged into the surface or Mercury. This is a relief map of Mercury created with that data, showing the relief of the planet in a vintage and contemporary way. We focus on every detail of production and all our products are carefully designed and packaged to enrichen your home. Our maps are also great gifts.

Hi! We are really glad that you are interested in our maps! We make maps because we love geography and art. This short text explain how we make our cartographies:
This are old maps restored and combined with modern elevation data digitally-rendered (printed in 2D, maps are flat to touch), created to show the relief of the places in a vintage and contemporary way, giving them a new perspective.
Relief is obtained from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM) and we use some softwares and techniques to make the maps look like they have a real relief. Some maps do not have an old base. They are just stylized to look like antique or modern maps. Other maps, such as those of the moon and planets and world maps can also go through this process too.
Making these maps is not an easy thing. But to sum up, what we do can be seen in the image below:
