Carved Topography Maps

So my obsession with maps over all these years is finally manifesting itself into something useful, or at least interesting. I’ve always loved the idea of carving out 3d maps and this range is the final result.

I have designs of all the main Shetland islands available, as well as some mainland areas. Eventually I plan to do a version showing the whole of Shetland, which will be some size!

The maps are drawn on the computer using Digital Elevation Model data and so are completely accurate. Most of the maps use 25m divisions in the topography although I do stretch the height slightly to accentuate the map.
