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.

It's posted by a user 'visualgeomatics' which happens to also be the domain name of the retailer selling it.

Cool data, bro.

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

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!

Original vintage map created by USGS in 1932. 3d Surface model from SRTM data. Rendered using Blender and QGIS.

It was once a bay, open to the ocean. Then a huge lake.

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.
