I'd like to get some Tyvek maps, both topo maps and regular street maps of a few U.S. cities.

Where can I get these?

Have you considered buying the soft-surface tyvek and printing yourself? – Russell Steen Dec 11 '12 at 17:33
@Russell I don't know where I would get images of sufficient resolution for street maps, and I would like both types of maps in color which I cannot print. If I can get the images I could potentially have them printed, but in my experience that will be a lot more expensive than if a general Tyvek map service exists. – Mr.Wizard Dec 11 '12 at 18:52
@MrWizard -- A general service would likely be cheaper. As to the printing, you can usually print at Fedex if you have the images. For topo there are a couple of online sites that let you download good resolution images, but I'm not aware of anything for streets. – Russell Steen Dec 12 '12 at 2:32

Palomar do a few US cities in their Crumpled City range - San Francisco, New York and Chicago.

The Find do a range of Trail and National Park maps in Tyvek (scroll down on this page to find them)

I suspect the answers will be scattered. I don't know of any one source of Tyvek maps that cover everything.

For the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the AMC publishes quite decent trail maps in Tyvek. Unfortunately, the White Mountain Guide book comes standard with paper maps. You have to buy the Tyvek maps separately. They cost more, but I find them worth it. They really do stand up to abuse and wetness very well.
