Custom Topographic Map

db Communications of Wisconsin is a wireless communications business that specializes in high speed wireless network design and construction. They came to us looking for a custom topographic map that could provide a wide area snapshot of terrain, geography and topology for site-specific analysis in specific strategic development areas. For the most part, db Communications was interested in looking at the highest points in an area to determine where they should place new communications tower locations.

We decided to make two different maps, one for each county they were interested in – Rusk and Chippewa County (WI). Each map was made to display standard features like roadways, waterways, cities/towns but we also included additional data such as elevation contour lines and forested land. We then took this a step further and highlighted the areas that were the highest points in the counties based on criteria the client provided.
