of this Montana travel guide section on Big Sky Fishing,
I thought it would be helpful to put some interesting maps
about Montana on the site. The maps on this site aren't
your typical highway map. Instead, these Montana maps show
"other things" about Montana that might be of interest.
Montana maps currently shown include a precipitation map,
forest cover map and many other "different" maps that a
person who plans on visiting Montana for the first time
may find useful.
find other good Montana maps, I'll add it to the collection
below. If you know of any good Montana maps that shouuld
be included here, by all means, let
maps open in a new window.
some of these maps are pretty big - size wise. So, be patient
if you are on a dialup connection while these maps load.
Precipitation Map : Montana
broken down by how much precipitation falls across
it. Good way to see the often times radical differences
in precipitation that Montana has.
Population Map : Montana
is pretty sparsely populated. Until you see this map,
though, you won't quite realize exactly how sparesely
populated it is - especially the eastern part of Montana.
Shaded Relief Map : This
map shows the radical elevation changes found in Montana
and provides the elevation of the land in broad terms.
Very nice and colorful map.
Forest Cover Map : Montana
is not the most heavily of forested states in the US,
that's for sure. And the reason is because of the vast
prairie found in eastern and central Montana. This
map shows where the forests are and what kind of trees
Federal Lands Ownership Map : The
federal government owns lots of land in Montana, although
not as much as found in some states out west (Nevada
is 90% federall owned!). This map shows you where all
the federal lands are and who owns what.
