Our classic map of North Carolina uses elevation tints in subtle hues of
green, tan, and brown to show the differences in elevation throughout
the state, from sea level at the Atlantic Ocean to Mount Mitchell at 6,684'.
This North Carolina topographic map displays an incredible amount of detail,
from cities, highways, and mountain ranges, to valleys, rivers, and
small towns. The elevations of North Carolina are represented by color, and
this, in combination with our special relief shading technique, gives
the map a lush, 3-dimensional look.
