Askja Volcano Map

Print size: 18×18 inches (46×46 cm)

This map is a part of the Volcano Map Series from Maps of Iceland. The original Atlas maps that are used as textures were surveyed between 1905 and 1930. You can see a 360 degree panorama of Askja here.

Askja is an active volcano situated in a remote part of the central highlands of Iceland. The name Askja refers to a complex of nested calderas within the surrounding Dyngjufjöll mountains, which rise to 1,510 m (4,954 ft).  Askja meaning box or caldera in Icelandic.

For decades, the so-called Atlas maps were at the scale of 1: 100,000 the main topographic maps of Iceland. Even today, there are many who take those cards over the other end with well-made variations and beautiful cards. The origins of the Atlas maps can be found in the very ambitious Danish map-making in Iceland

Askja volcano map is an antique map, combined with Digital Elevation Data to produce shaded relief to create the illusion of 3D. The shading is printed on the paper and not a result of the map protruding from the surface.

Please Note: Text and place names on this Iceland Shaded Relief Map can be difficult to read due to font size, shaded relief covering some of the text, and the age of the original map – we suggest the larger size map if you would like better legibility.
