The Alluvial Valley of the Lower Mississippi River   Harold Fisk graphics

These incredible maps of the Mississippi River were created in 1944 by Cartographer Harold Fisk. In great detail he mapped the twisting and changing path of the river over time in these swirling rainbow colours. The result is the most amazing set of infographics presented in a beautiful way. The high resolution files can be downloaded from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
