Nautical map of the Saint Augustine harbor area from 1879, published in Preliminary Chart of St. Augustine Harbor, Florida from the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey, the first science-oriented agency of the US government, in existence until 1970 when NOAA was created.

Printed on high-quality birch wood, this piece combines natural texture and sustainable materials. You'll see the wood grain, and the natural color of the wood gives the piece its antique look. The wood is only 10mm thick so it's a lightweight piece, and arrives with hardware for easy hanging.

Stuck on that word "geodetic" ? Merriam-Webster defines "geodesy" as follows: a branch of applied mathematics concerned with the determination of the size and shape of the earth and the exact positions of points on its surface and with the description of variations of its gravity field.
