    Does anyone know where I could find line-drawn topographic maps like the one below?


    I've spent too much time searching online for something that will work. (It would need to be a high-resolution or vector file, not a crappy jpeg). It doesn't have to be a map of any place specific, just needs to look good.

    I've decided to look around for printed maps at book stores or whatever... anyone know of map shops or places that carry this type of stuff downtown? Could be new or vintage.

    Um, dunno if you're gonna use topos for route-finding, but vintage declinations will mess that up. (If not, then pls ignore my being Capt. Obvious).

    My cousin makes these for MNR. You'd figure it'd be done by satellite or electronically or something but it's actually quite labour intensive, on the ground type work. Especially in the arctic.

    You generally have to pay for accurate maps but you can buy them from MNR as someone mentioned.
