Sitting pretty on Canada's east coast, Nova Scotia is one of four Atlantic Provinces and includes more than 3,800 coastal islands in addition to the mainland. Almost completely surrounded by ocean, the Maritime Province draws many surfers, fishermen and whale watchers to its waters. Not only does it offer a significant thread of coastline but Nova Scotia also includes 5,400 lakes and no point is more than 42miles (67km) from the ocean. It is famous for landmarks such as the Bay of Fundy, the Joggins Fossil Cliffs and the Bras d’Or Lake inland sea on Cape Breton Island, as well as many large sub-basins, bays and offshore fishing banks. Enjoy it all while staying completely dry with this 3D wooden contour map.
The map depicts detailed bathymetric data (“topography of the water”). Made from 8 layers of 1/16" plywood, each layer represents 522ft of water depth. Each map will be unique due to the individual grain of the wood. They are all handmade with great care and attention to detail.
