Our featured maps are designed by professional cartographers. Using bathymetric charts (underwater equivalent of topography) and satellite images, the cartographers study the area and determine what should be included in the map to make it most interesting. Next, they determine how many layers the map should be divided into and then research all the points of interest that should be included that will make up the added detail. Land features include such details as: cities, towns, state parks, major and minor thoroughfares and even symbols; water features include: depths, islands, harbors, and channels. The level of detail on the Stock Maps is impressive; much time is spent in the rendering phase. Once the details are finalized, the map is put into production in a shop dedicated solely to the manufacturing and assembly.
New maps are released every month, and there are always new maps in the development phase. If you'd like to be contacted when new maps are available, please join our Nautical Wood Map email list. If you'd like to suggest a map location that has not been previously rendered, please submit your suggestion.
We fell in love with the 3D Nautical Wood Map Art when we visited the Sarasota store. We purchased the Great Lakes since we were living in Minnesota at the time. We moved to Ohio two months later and decided to purchase the Lake Winnipesaukee since we lived in New Hampshire prior to Minnesota. The maps showed great details and they are such conversation pieces.
I purchased my gift as a surprise for my husband who wouldn't purchase it for himself. We both love the relief map. The craftsmanship was excellent. The service is excellent as well, communicating via email. The relief map was packaged well and arrived without damage. Overall, superb product.
We purchased the Puget Sound chart, and it is absolutely wonderful. Nicely framed, very carefully packaged. It's fascinating and draws attention from all our visitors--and us.
The quality of the Tahoe 3D map is excellent, it exceeded my expectations. Customer service was exceptional, they were very helpful and friendly.
I ordered a relief chart of the Hilton head area as a gift, to commemorate a recent trip there. It is of good quality and as described on site. I had to correct my error in deliver to address and it was done very quickly. This was a pleasant and easy experience.
3D Sanibel map: Beautiful, makes you feel like you're there. We have been going there since 1972. Our son requested this for Christmas to hang in his new home. So you can see how much our time on the beaches means to all our families. He is now thirty so I know he will be so excited on Christmas day. He will enjoy for years to come.
My dad and I were on vacation and walked into the Sarasota shop and he loved Lake Eric and the Great Lakes wood map. For his 75th Birthday we had it shipped here. He loves it, so unique and well done.
I ordered one of the nautical 3D maps. It arrived very quickly and was exactly as the pictures portrayed!
The quality of the 3D laser carved bathymetric wooden chart that I order was just the finest there is. My whole family was amazed when they saw it. We will enjoy it for years to come.
Originally found the Nautical Maps when visiting New Orleans and decided once returned home to purchase as a Father's Day Gift. Dad loved the map and said I had raised the bar for all other gifts!
"3D Nautical Wood Maps" is high quality laser cutting plywood layered mapping, it is highly beautiful and is precise to fill my professional mind. I highly recommend this product to my all of friends.
The 3D nautical woods maps are just incredible. A beautiful gift for anyone special to you. The customer service was fantastic. Deb was so helpful and went above and beyond to make sure that we had everything we needed and then some to feel comfortable with our purchase.
I ordered a 3D wood carved nautical chart of the Great Lakes, in fact I ordered 2 one as a gift for my daughter, I just love it and can't wait for my daughter to open hers on Christmas. It was exactly what I wanted and at a very reasonable price. It got here so quickly too, it was just a very pleasant experience from beginning to end.
I bought one of the 3D Nautical Wood Maps (Block Island) and it was an excellent purchase. I will be purchasing another one for myself and one as a wedding gift.
I was trying to find a thoughtful gift for a friend who has moved away from our area. The 3 D carved wood map was perfect. I can't wait to give it to him.
