Note: Minimal text labels are included in order to preserve the artistic style of Georgia's terrain.
The relative elevation within Georgia is represented by the following colors. Green is used for the lowest elevation, such as the coastal plain in Georgia's southeast coast on the Atlantic Ocean and the river valleys in the central parts of the state from the Altamaha River, Ocmulgee River, Oconee River, Ogeechee River, and Flint River. The cities of Augusta and Savannah both are located at low elevation.
Yellow and orange represent mid-elevation levels, mostly found more inland in central Georgia. Atlanta, Georgia's capital and largest city, lies in this mid-elevation range, as do Athens and Columbus.
Reds, Blues, and Purples represent the higher lands in the northwest, with the peaks of the Blue Ridge Mountains of the greater Appalachian mountains in the far north of Georgia shown in White.
