Elevated Graphics specializes in making full color 3D printed maps and artworks to hang on the wall. This Dutch start-up company launched a web-based application that enables you to co-design and order 3D printed maps based on open data. Elevated Graphics uses an inkjet technology patented by Océ Canon, which offers full color relief prints up to 1 mm and 5mm in height.
The 3D printed artworks attract and sometimes deceive the eye and allow you to touch the intriguing patterns formed by a city plan or road network. Elevated Graphics is bringing graphic design, art and 3D printing together. Professionals and GIS specialists need to check out their Elevated Maps!
