An impressive real life three dmensional map of British Columbia will soon be on display at Victoria’s Crystal Garden as a main attraction at an exhibit called BC Experience. The map is 40 feet by 74 feet and represents the province at a scale of 1:99,000. The map is cut from high density plastic, then satellite imagery is printed on the cut model. The map even takes into consideration the curvature of the earth. Solid Terrain Modeling, the creators of the map, have also produced numerous other three dimensional relief models, some of which are viewable on their site.

More images and details on the process for creating the map are available on the Solid Terrain Modeling site or on the BC Experience site.
