The Glacial Landforms of the Puget Lowland

This is one of the best designed maps published by the North American Cartographic Information Society

The glaciers that shaped so much of North America and other continents left enduring marks on the state of Washington, particularly in the Puget Lowland region. The Glacial Landforms of the Puget Lowland map peels away a green carpet of trees and soil to reveal amazing features the glaciers left behind. A focus on six distinct geologic examples serves to educate and intrigue. We love how this map relies on minimal moving parts: your eyes and your curiosity.
