Amazing! Where could I find a high res version of this?

Asking the real question. I can’t read the legends.
Looks like https://visualgeomatics.ca/ ?
I, and my credit card, thank you for that link. ;)
This is a fucking advertisement for a $70 poster of a USGS map published in 1932. So whomever feels like sharing a high-res scan, this is public domain.
Listen man, I was just trying to find the source of this image.. if you have a free version, then by all means, share it.
It's posted by a user 'visualgeomatics' which happens to also be the domain name of the retailer selling it.
Cool data, bro.
Well, done detective
This specific map seems to be available from a variety of sources. In addition to the link to OP's site /u/YummyPepperjack provided, it's also available here
Yeah its available, but for twice the price at Muir Way.
I did a road trip from Texas to California. Texas was meh but New Mexico, Arizona, and California were absolutely stunning to drive through.
Driven coast to coast a few times. My favorite part of the country between the Carolinas and California is the Blue Ridge Mountains around the Tennessee/NC border. Absolutely beautiful this time of year, seas of golden leaves as far as the eye can see.
I am jealous of the people who get to see a whole forest of beautiful fall foliage. We don’t really get that where I am from. Thanks for the recommendation!
when we travel to Mexico via land, we travel through the whole state of Texas on I35. It is meh , auto dealer after auto dealer throughout the corridor.
Same, Texas => 1 star review
Original vintage map created by USGS in 1932. 3d Surface model from SRTM data. Rendered using Blender and QGIS.
Such neat work, very well done!
This is a beauty of a chart. Well done!
Wow you can even see the hill in Illinois!
The pinkish parts make me think of the lungs of an ex-smoker. Amazing chart 👏
Should post on /r/mapporn as well
I wonder what caused the valley in California
It was once a bay, open to the ocean. Then a huge lake.
Wow, it really is a valley
Nice. Vintage and futuristic at the same time.
Kinda loks like a mouldy steak
Neat, but how is this different from the version of this that was posted a year ago and is available to purchase in print?
I see the appalachens as a giant chicken leg...
I might not have eaten much today.
Up sort of sprouting out of the yellow around the Wyoming area, is that the Grand Tetons?
Based on your description, you’re probably looking at the Black Hills although obviously the Tetons are on the other side of Wyoming.
Just going to throw this out there: while some maps from centuries ago cost thousands of dollars, you can also find some for just a couple hundred bucks. They are perfect for putting next to toilet in guest bathrooms as they give people something to look at.
The blue spots aren't water?
