As an aide in Old Testament study, I'm looking for a topographical map of Israel - both East and West of the Jordan. Specifically, I want a map with topographical layer-lines showing specific heights. I'm not looking for one of those "green is lower and brown is higher and mountainous areas look crinkled" maps. I want the most precise and detailed map available. It would also be helpful if this map had major landforms (rivers, mountain peaks, etc.) labeled.

Does anyone know where I can find one?

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it really does not concern Christian theology or practice. – curiousdannii May 29 at 23:55

    @curiousdannii It's a question about studying the Bible - obviously relevant to Christianity. Do you have a better recommendation about where I should put it? – Truth May 30 at 12:35
  • @Truth - if you find out, please let me know cos I have wanted one for years. I think the most likely option is to get one from some shop in Israel. Or maybe someone in the States sells them. – Andrew Shanks Jun 1 at 7:39

Quick look on google. And the good news is that you can get maps from stanfords.co.uk .... the bad news is that there is a 4 to 6 month wait because of hot demand, and the even worse news is that each map costs £17.99 and there are between 22 and 26 of them. So assuming you want all of them that's over $500 plus postage. However, if you know which specific area of Israel/Gaza/West Bank you want then its an option.

More bad news is that the contour lines are at 20 meters on some and 25 meters on others which is about 70 feet or 80 feet on others... perhaps not good enough for the price.

Search for "100k topographic israel" in google.
