8 Free Seamless Vector Topographic Map Patterns Topographic map patterns seem to be really popular at the moment with designers who are wanting to capture the trendy vintage outdoors style in their work. They’re made up of lots of thin contour lines which bend and warp to form interesting shapes, which makes them great for filling out the background of your designs with a subtle pattern.
