Southcentral Alaska Topographic Map

This topographic map covers the entire Kenai Peninsula, and goes north to Talkeetna, East to Cordova, and West to Skwetna.  This project is 3’x3′, so I cut it at the Anchorage Makerspace, which has a larger laser cutter that’s capable of cutting something this size.
