Detailed physical wall map of Louisiana State at a scale of 1:500,000.
The cartography shows relief through a stunning, highly detailed shading, with different elevations varying in color, giving an almost 3-dimensional feel to the map. Peak heights are also clearly marked.
The map displays land only within the boundaries of the chosen states - there is no overlap with neighboring states. Principal physical features such as glaciers, mountain ranges, rivers and lakes are shown clearly. Human features, such as main towns, cities, roads and railways, are shown in a very fine, subtle and elegant cartographic style. State capitals are also clearly marked.
This map measures 105 x 115cm (41" x 45"). The gentle rolling landscape of Louisiana is a result of years of clays and silt being deposited by the Mississippi River. Remarkable Lake Pontchartrain is the largest estuary in southern Louisiana.
