I stumbled across an interesting map tool today, via the excellent Simon Kuestenmacher – who tweets regularly about all things maps as @simongerman600.

It is a free interactive online tool that allows you to create a relief map view from anywhere in the world. It is a little tricky to manoeuvre, but the search tool works well. Play with the zoom tool to get the best looking image.

Check it out at:

Here are some images I created:
