How are posters different than wall murals?
The posters contain the same information as the wall murals, but are delivered as a rolled print instead of mounted on gatorboard.

Because they are printed and shipped in a tube, with no mounting, framing or packaging costs, they are also less expensive than the wall murals.
What information is provided on the wall murals?
Aerial Focus wall murals include up-to-date aerial imagery with graphical data overlays to identify interstate highways, major roads, railroads, hospitals, retail, parks, industrial complexes, universities, airports, residential communities, etc.
Online imagery is blurry when I try to enlarge it, how are these different?
Imagery provided online is at a much smaller file size and dpi (dots per inch) in order to deliver quickly and create a positive user experience. It is not designed to be enlarged to create large format wall murals. Aerial Focus uses current imagery and works with extremely large files to provide clear and accurate images for output.
How are they produced?
First the imagery is acquired and color balanced to achieve the highest quality image. Next, we use multiple GIS and graphics software programs to add all of the data overlays/labels and prepare the file to print. Once printed, we can provide them as a professionally folded brochure or deliver them rolled in a tube.

How do the seams look on multiple panel wall murals?
