Trail of Tears
The Map on the left was produced by FOSI designers for the Fort Smith Museum in Arkansas.  Using research and historical data supplied the museum we developed this image which showed the Eastern Native American Nations that existed in the early years of the US.

Produced  as an Inkjet print with a protective matte laminate, the final product was mounted onto a composite substrate and ready for the installation of fiber optic light guides.

On the right is a very simple yet effective fiber optic map. The background map image of roads, rivers and town names are silk screened onto Formica style laminate.  Computer cut vinyl can be used with the same effect. 

The dark background enhances the brilliance of the fiber optic troop movements and battle effects.

Petersburg Map

Richmond Map
This superb map segment is a combined production of FOSI and a third party map specialist. 

The client wanted a 3D look to their exhibit but could not afford the cost of a topographic model.  Using top of the line map making software, detailed topographic features are easily depicted. 

Here you are looking at a relatively low resolution image.  You can imagine what the full size map looked like. Spectacular!

Whether using a 2D map or a topographic model, nothing enhances the experience for the viewer better than the combination of
fiber optics and audio narration. 

Troop movements, battle emplacements, gunfire and explosions all can be utilized to make the presentation exciting and informative.
