The New Jersey Highlands Coalition wanted a portable terrain model of their coailiton for use at development meetings and strategy sessions. This terrain model while only 20" x 30" had quite a bit of information on it. State, county, coalition, municipal and watershed boundaries, roads, rivers and lakes, and 2 subtle shades of green to differentiate between development and preservation areas all overlaid on top of satellite/aerial photography. The base relief model was fabricated in fiberglass because it is both durable and light weight. The final image is with a similar map without the satellite imagery. Since our fiberglass bases are laid up in a mold, it is easy to make additional copies.
A terrain model like this might take 3-4 weeks to complete.
