Greater Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming

Title:
Greater Yellowstone. Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, Montana, and Idaho. Grand Teton National Park, Wyoming
Description:
Austrian artist Heinrich Berann created four panoramas for United States Park Service: North Cascades, Yosemite, Mt. McKinley, and Greater Yellowstone. This map of Yellowstone is oriented looking south towards Grand Teton National Park. Berann came from a family of artists and turned to creating panoramic maps early in his career. This interest in panoramas led to the creation of over 500 such maps during his career most of which were of the Alps. Panoramas such as these sit between cartography and art. They are now typically used for depicting ski areas and for visualizing landscapes.
