Color Landform Atlas of the United States

Ray Sterner, Johns Hopkins University

This web site is an on-line warehouse of maps of the United States. For each state there are maps and images local to the site, and links to external web sites. Currently the following maps are available for most of the states: a shaded relief topographic map optimized to show the landforms; a map showing counties in a state; a black and white version of the shaded relief map; National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's AVHRR satellite images of the state; an 1895 map of each state from an old Rand McNally Atlas of the World; and a PostScript map of counties in the state intended for download and printing on a PostScript printer. The shaded relief maps were created from arrays of elevation data. The elevation data were derived from contour maps elsewhere.
