Vacant building's terrain map

The sides of this shabby building, apparently part of an old day care center judging from the play equipment in the yard, are covered with a terrain map. I guess it shows the surrounding countryside of Russell County, Alabama. The building is in Hatchechubbee. I came across this complex while on Route 26, and from a distance I thought I was looking at an abstract mural. It would be a shame if the building is simply allowed to decay; the terrain map obviously took a lot of work and is impressively creative and ambitious. But the area is short on money, so I fear this giant visual is doomed.
