      NEXTGEN U.S. Map Pack

      Maps are among the most important piece of a weather forecast or regional news story. The last complete package of U.S. maps that MetGraphics released was in 2017, and they look it. With the NEXTGEN U.S. Map Pack, you'll get 74 maps. Not one, not ten, not even fifty. These 74 maps include maps for each and every U.S. state, as well as U.S. regions (or domains, depending on what terminology you're familiar with).


      Each map in the NEXTGEN U.S. Map Pack has been hand crafted with care, by hand - no automation. This is done to get as much accurate data in place as possible, while keeping the maps looking clean and crisp - no data overpopulation.


      This project took by far the most amount of time to create and get finalized, taking an entire month to create an entirely new GIS system, then proceed to export the data for every single map one layer at a time. After typing out and placing down thousands of cities and positioning interstate icons, cleaning up oddities, and adjusting color to appeal to a wide group - it's all here.


      A few new key layers that weren't in the previous map pack include Terrain Overlays and Interstates (and their icons). Terrain Overlay layers are excellent to place on top of your map fills, which will add some terrain texturing to the map and the fills themselves.


      Here's a complete list of PNG layers that are available:

      • Cities
      • Interstate icons
      • Interstates
      • States
      • Counties
      • Coastline
      • Lakes
      • Rivers
      • Terrain overlay (25% opacity)
      • Terrain overlay (10% opacity)
      • Basemap
      • Landmass
      • Landmass with glow into ocean (if ocean is visible in map*)
      • Ocean
      • Ocean mask (this is an option to drop over your map to remove fills that overlap into the ocean, if you'd prefer not to have any ocean overlap)


      State maps come in the following resolution: 2650 x 1500 pixels. This allows for a moderate amount of zooming if you forecast for a particular part of a state.


      Regional maps are in raw-size format, and are 3506 x 2479 pixels. This allows for significant amounts of zooming with no quality loss, until you're at near-state level zoom.


      What’s to come

      Before the end of April:

      • An update that will bring a mask layer to all state maps that can be used to remove fills outside of the state you’re forecasting for
      • A darkening layer for state maps, that can be used to darken out the outer region surrounding the state the map a built around
      • A small update that ships blank city bars that will allow you to add your own custom cities
      • A small update that will ship blank interstate icons to add additional, custom interstate icons where you'd like


      Extended

      • Some maps for the west Atlantic will likely be released between May and June, for tropical weather season.
      • Additionally, there will almost certainly be some user requests that come in that get implemented. Stay tuned!
