This will be somewhat of an introduction for me as well as a posting of one of my first maps for critique.
My name is Brian Geer, am a Geography student at California State East Bay[CSUEB] and a resident of Antioch, CA. I am currently enrolled in Intro to GIS at, but I have been working as an intern in the GIS department for Contra Costa County in Martinez, CA beginning late summer ’07.
My most enjoyable classes have been the cartography series at my school. I have basically fallen, head over heels, for cartography. Anyhow, attached are my final for GIS class, the Contra Costa Count Skateparks map (this involves hypothetical criteria that I basically had to ‘make up’ for class) and a cartogram I recently finished for a project in my cartography class. I used only ESRI software for the skatepark map and only Illustrator for the cartogram.
Any suggestions, feedback?
