San Francisco Hills


Since moving to San Francisco I've struggled to figure out how best to represent this wonderful city on a map! Navigating the ups and downs of the hills is part of daily life that affects walking, biking, and trying not to puke in a late-night Lyft ride. Not to mention the views! How many amazing views are there in SF?! So I decided to map the buildings of SF using their highest elevation point for the color. This allows the hills to be defined as well as the high rises in downtown.

I offer this map in a few color schemes that I think aptly represent the feelings of the City, contact me if you have a specific idea for a color scheme you'd like to see.

I want each building to be defined and visible, so this map is only available in 36x36. This size accounts for a 1 inch border around each map.

Note on the Process:
This is a digitally made GIS-map using data from the City of San Francisco. Each map is locally printed using archival toner ink 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
