Frequently Asked Questions

What type of map should I buy: rolled-paper, folded-paper, or rolled-laminated?

About 82% of customers buy the map to hang on their wall — and the laminated map is the best choice because you can write-on and wipe-off the surface when you use a dry erase pen. The laminated maps have brass eyelets for hanging with tacks. The laminated maps are guaranteed to last a lifetime. Most customers don't realize how beautiful the maps look until they hang it on their wall — then they often decide to frame the map. You can frame the laminated map by mounting it to a board — the advantage over a paper map is that you won't have to add heavy and breakable glass. The folded maps are great for taking on fishing trips.

May I exchange my paper map for a laminated map?

Yes. Simply return the paper map to the return address on the shipping label. Include the price difference plus $8.00 shipping and if you are a Pennsylvania resident add 6% sales tax. We will promptly ship you a laminated map.

Do the maps have roads?

Yes. Major and secondary roads are in a lighter color so the blue water stands out as the primary feature. Water can be very difficult to see on most maps. We've made blue the brightest color. We offer close up maps with back road detail that match the square quadrants on your Stream & Lake Map. We also offer back-road atlases that works well in combination with our waterway maps.

What are watershed boundaries?

They appear on our map as green lines. It helps to think of the tops of mountains and hills as forming the borders of large basins. All the water that falls within a boundary will eventually end up in the same place flowing from small tributaries to larger creeks, then usually into a river. On the other side of the mountain or hill, the water flows in another direction into another basin. Join your local watershed conservation group and help protect the watershed you live in.

How often are maps updated?

Changes are made every two to three years. Streams seldom change their directions, but sometimes names change. New lakes and ponds are added. We appreciate hearing from our customers when they spot what they believe is the occasional error. This helps us make  Professor Higbee's? Stream and Lake Maps the best possible.
