Illinois - Elevation Tints Map
Our beautiful map of Illinois uses elevation tints in subtle hues of green, tan, and brown to show the differences in elevation throughout the state, from the lowest point, 280' at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers, to the gently sloped Charles Mound in the northwest of the state at 1,235'.
This topographic map displays an incredible amount of detail, from cities, highways, and mountain ranges, to valleys, rivers, and small towns. The Illinois elevations are represented by color, and this, in combination with our special relief shading technique, gives the map a lush, 3-dimensional look.
