Learn more about the map styles

Each map type offers different information and each map style is designed for a different purpose. Read about the styles and map projection used in the above map (Satellite 3D Map of Greece, political outside).

Satellite map shows the Earth's surface as it really looks like. The above map is based on satellite images taken on July 2004. This satellite map of Greece is meant for illustration purposes only. For more detailed maps based on newer satellite and aerial images switch to a detailed map view.

Hillshading is used to create a three-dimensional effect that provides a sense of land relief. Shadows drawn on a map simulate the effects of sunlight falling across the surface of the landscape.

Political map shows how people have divided up the world into countries and administrative regions such as states, counties, provinces, municipalities and postal zones. Different colors represent different countries and regions, whereas different shades of one color represent their internal divisions.

The choice of color is not related to the characteristics of Greece, colors are assigned to countries and regions randomly. The capital is marked with a black star inside a white circle. Squares and circles of various size indicate other major cities.

A map projection is a way how to transform points on a Earth to points on a map. This 3D map uses Plate Carree projection, a simple variant of the equidistant cylindrical projection originated in the ancient times. The parallels and meridians are equally spaced, they together form equally sized squares over the entire world map.

Using simple grid, where each cell has the same size and shape, brings in significant benefits. For comparison, the detailed maps of Greece use Mercator projection instead. The Mercator projection preserves the shapes and angles of small areas better, but on the other hand, it significantly distorts the size of areas.

The Maphill difference

It's neither this satellite 3D map nor any other of the many millions of maps. The value of a map gallery is not determined by the number of pictures, but by the possibility to see the world from many different perspectives.

Technology

We unlock the value hidden in the geographic data. Thanks to automating the complex process of turning data into map graphics, we are able to create maps in higher quality, faster and cheaper than was possible before.

Forever free

We created Maphill to make the web a more beautiful place. Without you having to pay for it. Maphill maps are and will always be available for free.

Real Earth data

Do you think the maps are too beautiful not to be painted? No, this is not art. All 3D maps of Greece are created based on real Earth data. This is how the world looks like.

Easy to use

Different perspectives

The value of Maphill lies in the possibility to look at the same area from several perspectives. Maphill presents the map of Greece in a wide variety of map types and styles.

Vector quality

We build each 3D map individually with regard to the characteristics of the map area and the chosen graphic style. Maps are assembled and kept in a high resolution vector format throughout the entire process of their creation.

Experience of discovering

Maphill maps will never be as detailed as Google maps or as precise as designed by professional cartographers. Our goal is different. We want to redefine the experience of discovering the world through the maps.
