California - Elevation Tints Map
Our California map uses elevation tints in subtle hues of green, tan, and brown to show the differences in elevation throughout the state, from Mt. Whitney, 14,505' in the beautiful Sierra Nevada Mountains to California's Death Valley's Badwater Basin at -282'.
This topographic California map displays an incredible amount of detail, from cities, highways, and mountain ranges, to valleys, rivers, and small towns. The California map elevations are represented by color, and this, in combination with our relief shading technique, gives the map a strikingly 3-dimensional look.
