The content is so good, detail is so good; I can look at this image for hours. But, even at 20x20 it’s too small to see a lot of the details. If you’re thinking of getting this, get the largest one you can.
Grasshopper followed up my last review with a refund and a discount on the map I wanted. Thank you!
Grasshopper helped me realising that dream i had in my head for years, to see the shape of the world surface without water
I really like the map I received. It's exactly what I expected from the pic on the website. My map of Texas with the river systems well delineated and color-based elevation changes from coast inland is not only pleasing from a geography nerd perspective but is very fetching to look at as an art piece. Beautifully done.
I bought this for my son’s office, it is really beautiful and gets a lot of rave reviews from his clients and co-workers!
I’m a geography teacher and adding this print to my class display about rivers has captured the attention and imagination of my students. It sparks lots of questions and it looks fantastic!
Thought I was getting a wall map, instead it’s like bookmark size and very blurry. Asked to send it back but was told an emphatic no. Not impressed.
We are sorry to hear you somehow ordered the wrong size. We have the size chart included in the product description, but now we've decided to upload it among the product images as well, so it's more visible. Hope this will help avoid these mistakes in the future. As for returns: as you can find in our return policy, we do not accept returns but we are happy to replace a faulty print for no extra fee. I've just sent you an email about this, I hope the offer you find there will be satisfactory.
Hello. I bought the River basin map, rainbow colours on black - Fine Art Print. It was a very good map but the black colour when I tried to frame it discoloured right away in my hands. As a result I have the map hung on my office without a frame and unfortunately there are many discoloured spots in the black backround. The ink fades away with a single touch! After this I won from you last year another map, rainbow colours on dark backround again and I ordered in glow paper but it is so shiny that the colours are blending each other and you need to have strong spotlight towards the map to understand what it depicts. So, your idea is very good but you definetely must work your inks and your paper - I am dissapoinited with the mat as well as the gloss print.
Thank you for your feedback on the fine art prints. We are aware that they need to be handled carefully, this is why we decided to include them in a white frame (a so-called handling space). We know it can still be tricky to frame them yourself, and we are planning to write a detailed handling guide to avoid these issues in the future. We put a lot of effort and time to choose the right paper for our maps and we still think that the matte prints suit them best, as it allows the colours to pop against the deep black. You chose the glossy print based on the photos we had sent you before we packed and shipped your free print. I am sorry to hear you find it too glossy. However, we are very disappointed to see your feedback only now, and not in the emails we exchanged after you'd received your prints where you indicated that you were very happy with them.
We gave a framed river basin map to each of two family members who spend a lot of time rafting rivers—they love them! These maps are now my favorite gifts.
I think of the rainbow river basin maps as the original Grasshopper Geography maps and probably the most well known. I have this print and a global population one framed next to each other in my office. I teach GIS and these are great examples of brilliant GIS work, as well as being beautiful objects
The forest maps are very well designed to make the forest cover "pop" in the image. I teach GIS at a university and have a framed version of this print in my office as a great example of what can be done with data visualisation.
An impressive magical poster! The velvet effect of the black background is amazing, but you have to illuminate it so that the colors come out better.
I didn't look carefully at the measurements, so when it arrived at a postcard size, I was disappointed, I thought I had ordered a poster size.
I really enjoy the work that Grasshopper Geography creates. The colors and black background really bring forward the details and complexity of major watersheds.
The paper itself was difficult to manage without denting or damaging the perfect surface, but I don't know how to solve that one! With the map framed and hung on my wall, I really enjoy the product.
Really, really like my print, which is hanging over the TV so we see it all the time. Looking for sconces to illuminate it, too. If I had more empty walls I'd order more!
I bought USA map for my office. It’s both art & science. Colleagues like to study it!
Beautiful product. I gave mine as a gift. Also received excellent customer service with regard to the sending of the product
I am both a map fanatic and a lover of rivers. When I get in an airplane I get the window greasy from looking down at the geography. Your map of the American rivers is not only a geographic wonder, it is a beautiful piece of art. It was genius to make it with out any other political or geographic information. When guests come I love standing in front of it as we identify the rivers we’ve known. When are you going to make one of our North American continent?
I bought 2 maps from grasshopper geography: a South America river basin - rainbow colors, and a Brazil river basin - pastel colors. The maps are very beautiful and are of great quality, so a larger print really makes it "pop". I bought it as a birthday gift to my SO, since she studies rivers and society, and it she's got a smile on her every time she looks at our wall.
I am very satisfied with my purchase and this beautiful map is displayed in my office; my grandchildren have already asked me about the meaning of this river bassin map.
I was totally happy with your product and with the way it was received. I will probably shop with you again at some point and would highly recommend you to my friends.
