Note: This map is an artistic representation of Mississippi's terrain. Text labels are intentionally limited.
Green areas of the map are Mississippi's lowest elevation. This includes the Gulf Coast at the southern tip of Mississippi and also the vast Mississippi River Alluvial plain along the western edge of the state. The Pascagoula River valley is also among the lower elevations of the state. Large Mississippi cities such as Gulfport, Hattiesburg, and Biloxi are all located in the various low elevation portions of Mississippi.Mid-elevation is colored with warm colors (golden yellow, orange, and red). This land includes much of the inland parts of Mississippi and even the very north art of the Mississippi River Plain. Jackson, Mississippi's capital and largest city, and the city of Southaven are located in this mid-elevation range.
High elevation is shown with blue and purple and white for the absolute highest places. While much of this relatively high elevation runs throughout central Mississippi, the highest point is Woodall Mountain, in the northeast corner of the state. The elevation of Woodall Mountain is 246 m or 807 ft.

Though Mississippi does not contain any major mountains or physical landforms, this physical map still accentuates the elevation changes and terrain contours that do exist. The river plains and valleys are very visible, as are the various hilly regions such as the Pontotoc Ridge and Fall Line Hills in the northeast, the North Central Hills, and the Pine Hills in the south.
Mississippi's bodies of water are also shown. In addition to the Mississippi River and Gulf of Mexico, the map also includes many of Mississippi's lakes and reservoirs.
