Montana Precipitation Map

As part 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.

As I 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 me know.

All maps open in a new window.

Note, some of these maps are pretty big - size wise. So, be patient if you are on a dialup connection while these maps load.

Montana Maps

Montana 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.

Montana 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.

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.

Montana 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 grow there.

Montana 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.
