I'm a GIS Analyst/Developer (heavy on the developer side) in Arkansas. Like a lot of GIS professionals I got into the field because I love maps. Unfortunately, I've made a lot of ugly maps. A few years ago I came to the realization that my maps suck. I decided to work on this and I've gotten better over the years, but I still need improvement. Most of my colleagues that I interact in with from other agencies aren't any better. Ugly maps seem to be rampant around me. That's why I'm here. I need a place to have my work critiqued so I may improve.
I've been working on a basemap for one of my web apps. I should be posting some examples of this to the Map Gallery forum for some suggestions/critiques.
I also have some fun maps (outside of work) I'm working on for practice.
