Book Description

1 Jan 2012
This Deepmap of the Central Lake District allows the viewer to instantly see the Lake District terrain in 3D without any glasses or other equipment. It is designed to give viewers an understanding of the landscape topography which traditional maps rarely offer, and will aid route planning for walkers and other outdoor enthusiasts. The map appears as solid 3D, like a model, but is actually flat. It uses cutting edge printing technology to show slightly different views of the same terrain to each eye. This 3D is superior to mass-market 3D, as seen in televisions, because instead of just 2 images, there are 19 images. When the viewer moves their head to a different viewpoint, they get a different view as if looking around the terrain model, and a seamless impression of depth. No glasses are needed - thousands of tiny lenses built into the surface of the map create the 3D effect. The map, which is slightly larger than A3 size, shows the central portion of the Lake District National Park in Cumbria, from Skiddaw in the North to the Old Man of Coniston in the South. Approximately fifty of the tallest Lakeland fells are labelled, along with major settlements and the larger lakes. Contour lines and grid lines are overlaid onto the model, giving an unusual and useful combination of cartographic notation and real depth. Deepmaps are printed on durable polyester resin plastic with a protective polypropylene backing to the print layer. They are tough, waterproof and require no power, equipment or special lighting to be viewed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good 3D effect 5 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this as a gift and was quite impressed with the 3D effect.

I bought a frame from The Range which finished it off lovely.

I guess if I had to be picky, I'd say the size was a little awkward to find a frame, just find a frame with an inlay boarder.

Really clever map that looks 3d. Made a lovely present for a friend who walks in the Lakes. It is unusual - and very impressive.
