2 dimensions isn't enough!

I'm looking turn a topo/height map into a 3-D model. Where can I cheaply print a one-off 3-D model? I don't want to sink too much money into buying my own printer yet.

I've been thinking about plotting GIS data in 3-D (so not just topo, but using height as a data layer.) I see that 3-D printing is all the rage these days, does the hivemind have any suggestions where I could get something like this printed and at what cost?
Let's say for the purpose of this example that I need two colors, and the final dimensions will be 6" long, 12" wide, up to 12" high. Let's also say that I will provide the 3-D data, all I need is someone to print it.
