San Francisco Bay Bathymetry


This Map's Story:
I made this map because I wanted to map the Bay Area, but wanted to represent it in a new way. This map shows the water of the bay using the full color spectrum to show water depth, or bathymetry. This map allows viewers to use the water to identify places like San Francisco, the East Bay, Marin, and Alcatraz based on their shorelines.

This map is available in the color scheme seen in the images. You can choose between a yellow title, a grey title, or no title.

Prints available in 12x18, 18x24, and 20x30 -- size includes .5" white border.

Note on the Process:
This is a digitally made GIS-map using data from NOAA. Each map is locally printed using archival toner ink on 120lb paper with a matte finish. The 18x24 and 20x30 sizes are printed on 10 mil ultra-smooth matte poster paper, which produces a brighter color and smoother texture.

I hand-check each map for flaws and will personally package and ship with shipping insurance within 1 week of ordering (please allow additional time for custom color scheme requests).
**Color may vary between monitor and print
**Frame not included
