The map will show topographical information covering nine square miles including your chosen location, with some main streets and major landmarks. A small compass rose will indicate your chosen location and the address you provide will be featured on the personalized map legend.

FAQs

What are topographical maps? Topographical maps display land features such as elevation, roads, water, mountains, and some significant landmarks. Town and county names are sometimes shown. Streets are sometimes labeled.


How old are the maps used for the trivet? Our maps were originally drawn as long ago as 1890 and may have been updated many times since. Each map has been updated at least as recently as 2008.


Why isn’t a specific street shown on my trivet? Cartography is the delicate balance between aesthetics and the need to convey huge amounts of information. The level of detail is dependent on the location and elevation, just as it is with online map services.


Why do you need a postal address? We create a #-square-mile map with your chosen address just off center. We also type this address in the map legend. Please double-check the spelling! We do catch and fix most errors, but your help is much appreciated.


My map is off by a few miles or many miles! On rare occasions our mapping software does not recognize a location. This is more likely to happen in rural areas—you may have had similar experiences with online mapping services. If we do accidentally handcraft an incorrect map, we will work with you to determine the coordinates (latitude and longitude) of your location and create a new map for you using that data.


Why is my map so busy/so sparse? The charm of this product is that we use real maps, which are unique to every address. A map of New York City (population more than 8 million) will include many streets and alleys. A map of Box Elder, Montana (population just under 800), will be the exact opposite.

About Tumbled Marble

Our rustic tiles are carved from large marble blocks, ensuring that no two stones will ever be exactly alike. Then the pieces are tumbled to give them character that can be seen on every surface, edge, and corner. The result is a one-of-a-kind keepsake with more personality that would be possible from a piece of manufactured ceramic.

      Comments about National Geographic ''My Town'' Trivet:

      My son, who rarely acknowledges a gift, called me the day it arrived to thank me. He and his wife have already decided to order several of these for friends of theirs who were also posted to the same area for Coast Guard tours. Thanks for a great product.

      Comments about National Geographic ''My Town'' Trivet:

      This product was a Christmas gift for my boyfriend. I was at a loss as to what to give him, but this turned out to be the perfect gift.

      When he uses it, he will also rekindle fond memories of the small town where he grew up in Pennsylvania. He was very touched by this gift.

      We are very satisfied with the workmanship and attention to detail.
