Overview

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 7 1/2 x 5–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.

Details

400 pieces. 12 1/4"W x 18 1/2"L completed. Covers a 7 1/2 x 5–mile area. Scale: 1:26,000.

FAQ

Which mapping base is used? We use the USGS 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 USGS mapping we use is taken from 2014, 2015, and 2016 datasets.


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. USGS 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.

Disappointed

Comments about Nat Geo ''My Town'' Custom USGS Map Puzzle:

I am giving this item as a gift and was so excited it arrived today and now I am embarrassed to give it. The puzzle I received looks nothing like the puzzle shown. It only has about 5 streets listed. It is a small town, but surely they could have found a better map than what they used. I feel like it was a big waste of money.
