Have you ever noticed how maps of glaciers and their topography are stunningly beautiful? Probably due to the contrast between glacier (white or blue) and other (dark) colours the maps are uniquely visible and readable.
Here I present some of the tops mountain glacier map picks that I could find over the Internet, publications, books and map sheets – mostly vintage, old date. Unfortunately resolution some of the images could be low, however, it can’t prevent from a mesmerizing effect that pictures are producing.
