Additional Information

R. R. Donnelley and Sons Cartographic Services commissioned the creation of this shaded relief under the supervision of Herwig G. Schutzler. The Cartographic Services unit at R.R. Donnelley is now defunct. Upon going out of business, Donnelley transferred ownership of the relief art to GeoSystems Global Corporation, which later became MapQuest, owned by AOL. When MapQuest sold off their custom cartography unit, GeoNova, a successor company, became the new owners of the relief. GeoNova has since failed. Herwig G. Schutzler then donated the film transparency of this relief to the U.S. Library of Congress, where it is permanently stored along with other Donnelley relief art. The location of the original relief art is not known.
