Raised Relief Maps of North Carolina

Raised Relief Maps are a superior visual reference.  Fully three-dimensional, these maps use shaded visual relief in addition to exaggerated raised relief to represent altitude gradation and topographic diversity. Terrain contours are typically exaggerated by a factor of 5 to 10 to enhance the 3-dimensional effect of the raised relief features.
