Martinsburg, WV (PRWEB) May 05, 2015
Summit Terragraphics (SummitMaps.com), creators of raised relief maps, recently announced the release of a detailed 3D trail map of Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
As with their other maps, Summit uses a precision thermoform molding process to realistically reproduce the park’s rugged terrain in miniature (at at scale of 1:180,000). A subtle elevation color ramp image enhances changes in elevation while detailed annotations identify geologic features, trails (including the Appalachian Trail), shelters, campsites, roads and ranger stations, as well as rivers, streams, and lakes.
Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the most visited of all 58 national parks, covers more than 500,000 acres spanning North Carolina and Tennessee. It offers visitors 800+ miles of backcountry trails, sixteen mountain peaks that exceed 6,000 feet in elevation, more than 2,000 miles of streams, and thousands of campsites and picnic areas.
The new map is available, framed or unframed, online at SummitMaps.com and at select retailers, including National Park gift shops. The retail price for the unframed map is $19.95; framed maps range from $59.95 to $64.95 depending on the frame choice.
