I've been working on updating my specs and standards for the series of travel maps I work on. Rather then write up a specs document I usually set up a "style samples" layer in AI and save that as a template with the various label and symbols shown as well as saved to the styles and symbols palettes. Below is a snap shot of my updated styles page for the OJ maps. It's such an improvement on the mess I had before I thought it might be worth sharing.
I'm also curious, do other cartographers do this sort of thing for setting and keeping track of styles for map series? If not how do manage map specs and standards?
If you have any similar docs to show off please add them to this thread.
I suspect ones interest in this will be a good litmus test for cartographers!
