About this Product


OVERVIEW:

The product is a hollow 3D terrain model of Ben Nevis (highest mountain in Scotland and the British Isles) based on Ordnance Survey elevation data.  The 3D model has been updated to so that the newly measured height of Ben Nevis is referenced, but the photos of the model above have not yet been updated.

It is an ideal gift for a mountain walker, mountain lover or a map enthusiast, or an attractive souvenir for anyone who has visited the summit of Ben Nevis and has admired the shapeliness of the mountain and its neighbouring peaks. The model can be put on display as an eye-catching ornament or memento that will be sure to be a conversation piece. It could also be a useful tool for a geography teacher or navigation instructor who wants to demonstrate how 3D terrain relates to its representation on maps.

The vertical scale of the model has not been exaggerated and the model is therefore is completely accurate to scale. The upper surface has been textured with the appropriate part of the Ordnance Survey Landranger Map of Ben Nevis, Fort William and Glen Coe (Sheet Number 41). The 3D model is aligned to the UK National Grid with the 1 km grid lines etched on the bottom of the walls of the model.

In addition to Ben Nevis, the model also features surrounding peaks such as Càrn Mòr Dearg, Càrn Dearg Meadhonach and the two Càrn Deargs (NW and SW).
