Vintage Shaded Relief World Map - Craster Parabolic Projection


These are NOT 3D maps. They are 2D maps printed of a flat surface. These are decorative maps, not for study, reference or close-ups. Note that the Great Lakes are not visible on these maps for technical reasons.

ABOUT THE MAP

Craster Parabolic Projection Map: this projection has a meridian that follows a section of a parabolic curve. Lateral meridians quite excessively bulge outwards, producing considerable shape distortion at and near the map outline. This beautiful World Map shows land cover and ocean depth in a natural style, created to show the relief of the continents in a vintage and contemporary way. Relief is obtained from the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission (SRTM). 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. With this short text, we try to explain how we make the maps:

This are old maps restored and combined with a modern relief map created with elevation satellite data (printed in 2D, maps are flat to touch), showing 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 relief maps, and just stylized to look like antique or modern maps. Some maps, such as those of the moon and planets and world maps can also go through this process too. All other maps are all based on old maps.

Making these maps is not an easy thing. To sum up, the process can be seen in the images below:
