Detailed Map of Central Alborz Mountains

Detailed Map of Central Alborz Mountains

Click on "View High Resolution Image" and then the magnifier/plus sign to see the large map. This map has been created by me based on the 1:50 000 maps. Special thanks to Nomad who first began to color code my topo maps and helped me colorize many parts of this map. The largest dimensions of this map cover an area 110 Km (north-south) by 202 Km (east-west). The main purpose of this map is to acuurately represent the topography and show as many peaks as possible. Main roads (red lines) and main rivers (blue lines) have been accurately shown. Many other roads/villages/streams/ not appear on this map. Green lines represent freeways.

hey !

Looks great, you can see everything in a view. I feel I want to print o large one and stick it to my room wall. It's too late to say it but I feel my color definition looks creepy, maybe using a palette of only one or two colors would look better, but the first time I did it I choosed the colors randomly not using my senses just because I couldn't understand the white maps :) sure I would like to have the map, if no problem, mail it to my gmail, if it's to big cut it into pieces, I will paste them.

Re: Great maps

Thank you Reza

Took me almost a year to make this map and then stitch together all the 50 odd pieces of it.

Very well done

This is a really helpful map. It shows many more summit heights and names than any other maps of the area that I have seen. If, as the author states, it is based on 1:50,000 maps, then these heights and names are likely to be accurate. It gives a height of 5628 metres for Damavand. Unlike the traditional height of 5671 metres, which still appears on far too many websites including the summitpost Damavand main page, 5628 metres is compatible with GPS observations and SRTM data.

Re: Very well done

Thank you for voting and commenting,

The 1:50000 maps give accurate elevations. Names come from schematic maps (drawings) that are often used by climbers in Iran.

I checked out your web-site. Very interesting.

attempt to load fails

Hi there! how can I zoom into the map? I have tried Chrome and Safari, neither one works ... thanks! Michael

Re: attempt to load fails

Hi Michi

On the right upper side, you will see "size". Click on "original". A plus sign appears on the image. click the plus sign and the big map should become visible.

Sorry about that. How things on Summitpost work seem to change from year to year.

Re: attempt to load fails

Hi Michi,

There was a problem with Summitpost. This was corrected. You should be able to zoom on the map now.
