I really like the consistency between this map and Bear's Paw. What you changed with the rivers, figure ground problem, and formatting the legend looks awesome.
- I think someone said this but the symbol for heavy engagement does not match map/key
- I def. agree that you should take the marsh out of the key - the labels for the other terrain features are on the map. Putting a similar label for the marsh might make it hard to read so maybe you'll need to end up leaving it as is.
How many maps do we have to look forward too?
No I missed the engagement. That is the second mistake on the legend. It's all from the fact I copy and pasted from my other map (Bear's Paw). Always good to have fresh eyes.
Currently my project is 7 maps, but I meet with the client today, and I want to talk him into 2 frontispieces. Based on the maps he showed me, I don't think that he realizes there is an artistic side to cartography.
