River Maps: Michigan

Major stream systems of my beloved home of Michigan, rendered as an urban transit network. I originally intended to do one map per state (or group of states, for the smaller ones), starting with Michigan, but I decided later to use watersheds, rather than political boundaries, as the basis for a map series.

This map features the following rivers, creeks, (etc.): St. Joseph, Elkhart, Pigeon, Fawn & Crooked, Prairie, Nottawa, Paw Paw, Kalamazoo, Rabbit, Battle Creek, Raisin & Goose, Huron, Grand, Thornapple, Flat, Maple, Looking Glass, Red Cedar, Shiawassee & Saginaw, Flint, Cass, Tittabawassee, Pine (Michigan), Chippewa, Muskegon, Manistee, Little Manistee, Au Sable & Kolke, Tahquamenon, Escanaba & Black, Menominee & Brule, Pike, Sturgeon, Pine (Wisconsin), Paint, Michigamme.

10% of the profits I earn from the sale of prints will be donated to organizations that protect and restore some of the watersheds seen in this river map series.

Important: Zazzle, the company which does my prints, will let you shrink the map down from the original size if you ask, but I cannot guarantee it will look good if you do.

    Very cool Michigan map. I like the idea of doing maps for all the Great Lakes. I would like to see a more detailed map of Southeast Michigan, especially Detroit. You can’t forget about the Rouge River or Conner Creek! Perhaps in the future?
