The Hawaii map conceptualizes topographic data in blue gradient tones creating visually stunning imagery. The archipelago of eight major islands is only part of the US state politically not geographically.
Major islands are captioned in bold fonts along with towns and cities of that area. The diverse terrain is projected with shaded relief and elevation. The inset includes the entire chain of reefs stretching nearly 3000 miles across the central Pacific. National parks, highways and mountain summits are other details that are included in the map frame.
