With offices in Virginia and Cambridge, England, Digital Wisdom was founded in 1992 to bring to the electronic publishing world the results of one of the most painstaking, comprehensive, and difficult projects of map-making. This project, the conversion of detailed survey data into extraordinary detailed dramatic relief maps of the world's land and ocean features, took over 20 man-years of work by a team of cartographers and modeling artists. Digital Wisdom has now converted this data into a digital format, and added geopolitical and other man-made features to produce the Mountain High Maps family of products.
