Big Island, Arkansas

1944 Fisk Mississippi River meander map and 1927 USGS 1:62,500 topographic map with shaded relief in 20″ x 24″ layout.

This is part of a series of maps show the major tributaries of the Mississippi River. This map depicts of the confluence of the Arkansas River. The Fisk meander maps are oriented to the river instead of north. I chose to highlight that on this map by not adding the map to the north so that there is a blank white triangle at the top of the map. It also seemed fun to run the Fisk map onto the collar of this map.

You can download the map without the color ramp over the map image using the link below.

I also made a map of the relative elevation model that’s not overlain on the rendered elevation like some of the other relative elevation models in this series. It give the color ramp a softer look.
