Extremely accurate bathymetric map of the Key Biscayne, Florida and surrounding area. Lying just south of Miami, Key Biscayne is the southernmost of the barrier islands along Florida’s Atlantic coast. Although it’s named “Key”, it isn’t part of the Keys, it’s actually a barrier island made from sand that’s eroded from the Appalachian Mountains, carried to the coast by rivers, and then moved south by coastal currents. Because of this, the island has a different type of sand than the other “Keys”; Biscayne’s is siliceous and soft, while sand in the other Keys is coarse, derived from broken up shell and coral.
This three dimensional map is carved from Baltic birch wood, framed and has a acrylic covering to protect the wood. Professional cartographers are used in the creation of each individual chart in order to insure the utmost accuracy. Some maps come in two sizes in order to fit virtually any area in the home, office or boat. We have charts from areas across the U.S. available on a drop ship basis. This is a great item at an unbelievable price. If you are searching for a particular area, please call or email.
The color will differ slightly with both the frame and background as each of the maps are hand stained and may vary from the picture.
