Benchmark Maps

Benchmark Maps is a map-publishing company based in Medford, Oregon and Santa Barbara, California. In 2011, the company published detailed atlases for eleven states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, and Washington, and Wyoming. The company got its start in 1995, and has sold over two million maps and atlases. It is owned by Athenaeum Capital Partners LLC and the General Manager is John Glanville.

Benchmark Road & Recreation Atlases all follow a common pattern: The front of every atlas has separate United States, regional and state maps used for orientation and overview, followed by a complete Recreation Guide including facility information. Then come the highly detailed Landscape Maps, which combine shaded relief and hypsometric tints or land use imagery. Most atlases have a section of "Metro Maps," enlarged detail for getting around the urban areas. All atlases are field-checked by Benchmark staff.
