Our custom map puzzle brings you even closer to your most meaningful place. For centuries, maps have helped us make sense of the world around us. This unique jigsaw puzzle lets you discover even more about the areas you know well. Your journey starts with a house-shaped center piece and grows, one “ah-ha!” moment at a time, into a six-by-four-mile topographic map. Streams and roads, forests and lakes reveal themselves as your 400-piece puzzle takes shape, resulting in a distinctive perspective on the places that mean the most to you. Specify recipient’s full U.S. address, including street number and name, city, state, and zip code.


Please note: Personalized items cannot be returned unless damaged or defective. Please check your order carefully; once placed, your order for this item cannot be canceled. Please allow 2–3 weeks for delivery. U.S. postal addresses only.


12 1/4"W x 18 1/2"L completed.


Which mapping base is used? We use the Delorme North America Raster Map base. This is a modern, street-style, topographical map base, which reveals most major roads and names many but not all streets, towns, cities, lakes, streams, and selected points of interest. The mapping also includes contours and a subtle relief shading effect.


How old is the mapping? The Delorme mapping we use is taken from their 2012 dataset.


How much area will my puzzle cover? The puzzle always covers six miles east to west and four miles north to south. The center will have a house-shaped piece, which is a good place to start!


Will my street be named? Not always. Delorme includes more than 7.1 million miles of roads in this dataset. They aim to label as many streets as possible but there isn’t space to label every street. There is a balance between naming every street and leaving room to display other local information such as neighborhood names and points of interest.


Why is my jigsaw not centered correctly? We have invested in the latest up-to-date technology to help us center on a full street address with zip code. However, in some rural areas the geocoding engines cannot site center with as much accuracy as is possible with more urban areas; in rare circumstances, your house may be slightly off center. If this happens, all we need is the latitude and longitude of your chosen center point to re-create your puzzle to that exact location.

      The puzzle is very well made, challenging but not too difficult. Even as an adult who has lived here most of my life, I still learned some things about my part of town. And, there is a cute little surprise right in the middle of the puzzle.
      The only negative about the puzzle is that there is quite a bit of undeveloped land area included. But, even that was fun to put together.

      Disappointing

      Location not marked, Contained too much ocean and not enough of the peninsula we wanted.

              Comments about National Geographic ''My Town'' Custom Map Puzzle:

              Ordered this *expensive* puzzle as a Valentines Day gift for my puzzle-loving husband. Thought about how much he would enjoy seeing backyards, vehicles, other details of properties around us take shape as he worked this puzzle. Waited FOREVER for it to arrive. It came the week of Valentines and it was not an Aerial View, but just a Street Map.

              Called customer service. They couldn't do a thing to help me. NG offers 2 types of My Town puzzles: Street Map and Aerial View. I had unknowingly ordered the Street Map version - not even sure why anyone would think putting together a Street Map was fun!

              It is NOT CLEAR on the website there are 2 types, especially when ordering from your phone. Make sure you're getting the one you want!!! The Aerial View is $10 more.

              I've distinguished the 2 types much better in this comment than they do on the website. Improve the website to match!!

              My Town Custom Puzzle:
              __ Street Map (example)
              __ Aerial View (example)

              And make sure it's clear from a mobile device!

              The LEAST customer service could have done was offer me the aerial view for the same price as the street map.

                Great idea for a puzzle, but the maps were very old. Ordered in 2014 and the map was from 2002. Not great as gift for a new homeowner. First puzzle received was a completely different state and needed to be exchanged. I love NatGeo but they dropped the ball on this one.

                        Having bought this as a gift for my husband when we moved to a new city, I now give it as a gift to family and friends who move. What a great way to get familiar with the street, parks, waterways! Working on it together is a delightful sharing of knowledge and ignorance.

                                1/2 of the puzzles is water( I did not know that would be the case)..puzzle pieces fit loses enough one does not know if it is the proper fit or not...fitting all the water colored peices together with such a lose fit was impossible, then at the end, peices where missing. I called customer service as I wanted a full refund, was told due to it's personal order, no refunds are given. Needless to say, we are very dissapointed with National Georgraphic, as this gift was recieved with much exceitment.

                                          ccNational Geographic Maps' new Ireland wall map is one of the most authoritative maps yet published of the Emerald Isle. Of the nearly 1,000 place-names shown on this map, all within the Republic of Ireland adhere to that nation's constitution—that the Irish and English language share official status. Thus, Gaelic (Irish) place-names, along with their English variants in parentheses, are shown within Irish-speaking regions while English place-names, along with their Gaelic variants, are shown outside these areas.
