Very Very Large Terrain Map

world's largest terrain map in China:
A click on the word "small-scale" in the second paragraph takes you
to the location of the map in GoogleMaps.
I post this here in Cartographic Design as this map raises all sorts of
map design questions: what is the projection? which hardware was
used - shovels or bulldozers? is the terrain exaggerated? do you
need a north arrow (I don't see one) when the map is the landscape?

Far smaller is the topographic relief map of the country of Guatemala that occupies a small park in Guatemala City. It was constructed (with substantial vertical exaggeration) by the Instituto Geografico Militar in the 1950s, I believe. As of 18 years ago, it was still there.
It appears to still be there.
And then there's the My model of the Mississippi River on the waterfront in Memphis.
