Yellowstone National Park

A 3D terrain visualisation of Yellowstone National Park, highlighting points of interest and land formations. Designed for display as an overview of this region.

Yellowstone is one of the world’s oldest national parks, for many the oldest altogether. It was the first area to be designated National Park status in the United States, established in 1872. This region is world famous for its geothermal features, including Old Faithful geyser and the Grand Prismatic Spring, with the whole region sitting on the Yellowstone hotspot.

The three dimensional appearance of this graphic has been created with a technique involving satellite imagery, whereby the image has been 'draped' over a digital elevation model. The mountain formations of this region lend themselves well to a presentation of this type.

Data from the following sources were used in the compilation of this presentation: Blue Marble: Next Generation: NASA's Earth Observatory; Landsat: USGS/NASA; National Elevation Dataset (NED): USGS.

About

Hello, my name is Ed Merritt. I am a cartographer based in Southampton (UK). I established Merritt Cartographic in 2006.

I am a graduate of Oxford Brookes University, receiving an honours degree in Mapping and Cartography. Having worked in the past for a large publishing company in central London, much of my current work is commissioned for inclusion in reference books. I also produce interactive maps for deployment on websites and in applications as well as products for use on public display panels and signposts. As a freelance cartographer, I have produced custom maps and graphics for a wide range of publishers, charities, media organisations and businesses. My work has been included in books published by Dorling Kindersley, National Geographic, Pearson, Penguin Books, Oxford University Press, Taschen, Laurence King Publishing, Millennium House and Weldon Owen. I've also created maps for a wide range of other companies and charities, including the Royal Horticultural Society, Smithsonian Institution, Best Western, The Greenbrier Companies, Fastmarkets, Bright Horizons and Cycling UK.

I enjoy being creative in my work and like to explore new approaches. As a map-maker, I have a natural tendency to pay attention to detail and also to work hard to ensure that I am being as accurate as I can in the work that I produce.

For more information on how Merritt Cartographic can best assist you with your project, please send me a message or make contact via the information displayed above and throughout the site. I look forward to hearing from you.
