What We Do 


Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Blue Dot Maps creates decorative 3D wooden terrain maps and 2D engraved street maps with attention to accuracy and artistry. Committed to environmental responsibility, maps are handmade using sustainably sourced hardwood. 


Locally milled hardwood lumber is assembled into usable dimensional wood. All maps are original cartographic designs made with a CNC router and/or laser engraver. Maps are then hand sanded and finished with shellac.

Every step of production is in-housed, from the selection and preparation of the wood to the original cartographic designs.
