Back to School Map Style

Back in the day a large map of the world adorned nearly every classroom wall.

Jonah Adkins has recreated the style of one of these classroom maps with his Back 2 School interactive map. The Back 2 School map style is based on an old map of North America that Jonah found in Charlottesville. The map uses elevation data from ETOPO, which is shaded on the map to recreate the topographical style of the original map.

The map itself was styled in Mapbox Studio. You can view more interesting map styles created with Mapbox Studio in Mapbox's new Mapbox Studio Gallery.
